Dip and Tick

We decided to make the journey up the A10 for Great Grey Shrike seeing that two had been reported today at Therfield. It took a bit of finding once on the heath but we eventually found the part of Icknield Way where the Shrikes had been seen today. A long muddy walk in a gale with  no sign of any Shrikes so a long muddy (uphill) walk back.  Large flock of 30 plus Yellowhammer present along with Buzzard and Red Kites seen on the way up the A10. On the journey home Jim spotted three Grey Partridge (153) in a field off the A10 so we did manage a tick for the journey and the Shrike will wait for another day.
