Red- backed Shrike seen at Ness Point wind turbine yard
On Wednesday 28th August, Robert had done it again a found a second Red- backed Shrike in 2 days! I just had enough time (8am to 8.15am) to drive down to Ness Point seen within the wind turbine compound viewed on the far western side of the compound as we watched it from the seawall. and join him for some 15 minutes watching the bird. A paler individual compared to yesterdays one, it preched on top of a Buddlea bush and flew down caught something promptly devouring it and then flying back to the top of the bush again. In the evening a visit to Gorleston walking south from the cliffs, 2 Wheatear were seen on the fence of the first garden and later one was still there and one on the municipal grass. An adult winter plumaged Mediterranean Gull was on the beach later seen flying north along the beach & where I later saw a Common Gull. A male Linnet was een to fly into bushes by the bank. I'm still unable to upload any photo's from my new Macbook Pro (an otherwise excellent computer) from the iPhoto onto this blog, does anyone have any suggestions??
