Great Grey Shrike - Wragg's Quarry

The Great Grey Shrike has returned, first seen on 30th October, I couldn't find it yesterday although the weather was very poor but it was at the quarry this morning. According to my records this is the 4th successive winter that it has been in the area although in 2010 it was less attached to the quarry than it has been in subsequent years.

  1. Great news Andy - I was looking for it a couple of days ago but no luck. Nice pics

  2. Thanks Steve, I certainly hope it stays around as it can brighten up those cold winter days. News of the Glossy Ibis has upstaged the shrike today. Quite a day for the Peak District!
