Red-backed Shrike at Holland Haven

Jim and I set off this morning hoping to connect with the Red-backed Shrike found at Holland Haven yesterday. We had little information but hoped it had roosted and we might get to see it stay for a second day. On arrival we were very fortunate as a local had just located the Shrike and very kindly waved us over so we too could enjoy the little cracker. Shrikes remain one of my favourites especially autumn Red-backs. The bird performed well for an hour and then the rain started to fall so we retreated to the car satisfied with our views but hoping to see more of this or others before the migration has finished this autumn.

Year list now 281
