Masked Shrike, Kilnsea
After a very hectic day yesterday we thought we would take it easy this morning and go out birding after lunch - wrong! Karen started the weekly grocery shop only to abandon it mid-shop after a call from Steve and John who were both at Spurn and both looking at the masked shrike. Made a very speedy trip there and eventually managed to see the bird. It was not easy as Karen wasn't tall enough to see it from the road but the shrike eventually flew up and landed behind Rose Cottage where we had brilliant views from canal bank.
So, 2 new UK birds in 2 days for us taking Karen's UK tally to 371. A fabulous day in excellent company and a good laugh was had by all !!
