The red-backed shrike from last night

A male red-backed shrike – not the bird from last night, but it looked just as good

It’s a beautiful day and last night was perfectly clear with light winds. Perfect migration weather so perhaps it’s no surprise that the shrike and redstart from yesterday haven’t been found again this morning. The next week is traditionally the best for finding something very very rare in the UK. There are more rain showers forecast for Monday and Tuesday and light south-easterlies so there is some small hope for us.

I have posted a  a picture of the red-backed shrike from John’s collection, taken in Bulgaria, to show just how superb looking they are.
