About Me

I am a novice to birding and have become interested since walking Frank our dog, a cross Flat Coat / Springer around Hastings Country Park and the surrounding area, I realised the little brown birds weren't just sparrows.

Thursday 23rd Feb The Glynde Shrike

A warm 15deg. afternoon (a week ago snow was still on the ground) sent me off to Glynde to look for the Great Grey Shrike. Eventually finding the path along the river I noticed a couple of birders looking for it.
20 minuters later it appeared some distance away alongside the railway line.

Giving good scope views in the sunshine it was very flighty as each train passed and hard to follow.

A good year tick, as the last one I saw was at Pannel Valley in Jan 2010.
