Great Grey Shrike: This would be my third visit to see this bird, but you can't blame me it's an absolute cracker!  

The bird was still favoriting the farm houses and buildings at the end of Moss Lane and although it was still disappearing from time to time it would regularly reappear on the aerials on the cottages.
I also caught a glimpse of the female merlin that has been regularly seen in the same area, it flew low and headed over the polytunnels.
