Red Backed Shrike
Scalby Beck Area
A few views (a first for me me!!!) of a male Red Backed Shrike on his migration route to probably Scandinavia.
He stayed around for around a day and a half with me unfortunately being the last to see him on the early morning of the 16/05/2013 around 7.15 am when he left his roost position and flew around the larger hedges on the opposite side of the clearing and footpaths.
