Mixed bag of migrants with a glut of Red-backed Shrikes

Permalink 16:52:29, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Hundreds of Red-backed Shrikes led the list of migrants these past two weeks. The best birds seen were a Corncrake and Cinereous Bunting both at Buri on the 10th unfortunately neither was photographed. Also numerous were willow Warblers that passed in their hundreds and Lesser Grey Shrike with a good showing along with Spotted Flycatchers.
