Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

Great Grey Shrike still present present this morning and harrassing meadow pipits. Little Owl showed briefly. An increase in fieldfare to 200, 2 stonechats but just 5 golden plover although one made an immaculate approach down the easterly runway before veering gently right to land on the barley field. 10 blackbirds in a small single elderberry bush got lots of attention but none with any white feathering or fringing....

Budleigh late afternoon

Dropped in and saw the snow bunting on the path at 4.00 p.m.
