Garwnant shrike

At last, found today at 14:50 on clear-fell between green barrier and the farm, always distant, using tops of broad-leaf scrub around perimeter of clear-fell. Watched it until 16:00, when Mr & Mrs GF Thomas and the dogs turned up, ticked it and left. It made 1 kill, small mammal, probably Pygmy Shrew which it appeared to eat completely.

First Curlew at Rhaslas yesterday, 1700 Herring Gull & 125 Lesser Black-backed at Pontsticill Reservoir, also yesterday. The gulls arrived at 17:00 hours, so plenty of time to view but alas no white wings, oh bugger.
