Quickie

Had a quick visit to Dru before work this morning in hope of garganey or better. No such luck, this nice wheatear was by the road though. The Kestrels appear have paired up, there are also at least two magpie nests under construction.






There was report of a great-grey shrike at East Chev this morning, that'd be nice. I've only ever seen one at Dru, found by the Boulmer Birder when Druridge was his patch - it was present from the 8th -10th October 2002, favouring the north end bushes.
