Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

The Great Grey Shrike present late this afternoon sitting low down in a hawthorn bush on the rough pasture. Having visited three times this past week after an absence of two weeks whilst on holiday without finding the bird, I  thought it had moved on so was pleasantly surprised. However very few other birds around with passerines very low in number - 20 fieldfare being the only other birds of note.
