With news yesterday of a Woodchat Shrike coming on the pager when I returned home from work I decided to make a early evening visit to Sandwich Bay to see the bird. Parking in the observatory at just before 6.30 p.m. I strolled down the track towards the microlight hangars and the hawthorn bushes where the bird was last seen. It took a little while for me to find the bird but it was soon sitting up happily as most Shrikes do. Unfortunately, there was a stream in the way and fading light but I managed to take two pictures of this very smart bird.
