This little beauty was showing incredibly well just after the rain stopped and I got some nice shots of it bathing and perching in the shrubs.
Woodchat Shrike: By the time we got our fill of the Sub-Alp and moved on in search of the Shrike the sun well and truly had his hat on and with new vigor we set off.
And once again we struck luck and saw the bird within minutes of leaving the car!
Three NEW UK LIFERS and great birds to TICK!
A day not to forget!
