23rd Oct. Sam and I visited Prestwick Carr today in an attempt to sight the Great Grey Shrike, but saw no sign. At least the rain had stopped! The area was very quiet, but we did sight a small flock of Redwing flying over the woodland, a flock of around a dozen Long Tailed Tits, Willow Tits, Meadow Pipits and three Common Buzzards.
Wader watching. One of the real joys of birding.
