Now two Great Grey Shrikes

(Click over sketch to enlarge)

On Wednesday March 18th 2015 we were very priviliged at Hutton Roof to receive the 2nd Great Grey Shirike which I managed to personally see them both on the 24th.  The second bird is of a darker phase than the bird that has overwintered with us.

 I just thought I would do this sketch to make note of the additional bird and for the first bird to lay down the ground rules to the new arrival.

No. 1 rule is that the Shrike must appear at least twice a day for the benefit of the local birdwatchers!
