Red- backed Shrike still there!
The adult male Red- backed Shrike is still showing at Carlton Marshes this evening, following yesterday's almost non- show (I saw it very briefly on the Thurs 4th August morning in the western most bushes), it had been thought it might have moved off; perhaps moved on by the extremely wet day we had had on Thursday. But the bird was still there tonight perched on the bushes viewable from the main west path running through and dividing up the north and southern sections of the reserve.
Rob Wils, Ian S and Jon E were seen, a veritable photographers convention and Rob Wils & I were able to get a few reasonable shots this evening.
