In addition to the regular Streatley adult GREAT GREY SHRIKE, a second bird has been showing for over a week now at the Sandy Smith Nature Reserve, east of Clophill. Like most individuals of this species, this latest bird is highly mobile and has a very extensive hunting territory; it is also difficult to get to within 100 yards of it - my best images to date....
