Woodchat Shrike

Out to Swell Tor Quarry on Dartmoor today with Dave Land to look for a Woodchat Shrike that was found yesterday and after a long walk of around 50 minutes we were lucky enough to get some great views of the bird that kept coming back to the same tree !! so once it had flown off to look for food we hid ourselves away behind a wall and sat down out of view and waited very quietly for the bird to come back and after about an hours wait there it was right in front of us perched on top of the tree ..... Magic !!!
Other birds seen in the area were 8 Northern Wheatear , 6 Common Stonechat , 3 Tree Pipit & a Common Cuckoo .
