Great Grey Shrike - Beeley Triangle

Glorious morning but much cooler today. The Great Grey Shrike was again around the Triangle briefly but was clearly in hunting mode, very active and always distant. Despite having been in the area for more than two weeks it's still very unpredictable and doesn't stay in one place for long.
Another good movement of Pink-footed Geese with several thousand passing directly over the moor.
A Water Rail has been photographed in Whitworth Park at the start of the week which is a very good local record and the first I have heard of in Darley Dale.
Got some better shrike photos this evening so have updated.
