Great Grey Shrike, Chanctonbury Ring

In contrast to yesterday the weather was fine and dry....ideal photographically, so a visit to check out the reported shrike at Chanctonbury was a 'must'. After a long uphill trudge with heavy equipment I searched for the bird in vain for an hour. Then, suddenly...there it was, right in front of!
Here are a few images, different to those on my Flickr site

A superb bird

Getting rid of it!
Well worth the long uphill walk to the top.

Revetment update.

Meanwhile back on the beach, the wind had subsided and Charlie Rock arrived mid morning and disgorged its load of rocks and work continues.
