A text message from John on Wednesday night alerted us of a Woodchat Shrike in Winterton Valley.
A superb bird seen hunting Bumble Bees, it was still present Thursday morning at least.

In the garden a Turtle Dove was seen on Monday night and Wednesday morning but not since. A special bird at any time and a welcome change from the normal Collared Doves.
Several Jackdaw and Rooks are coming in now feeding in the whoosh net area.

Also caught was this female Chaffinch with 'bumble' legs, She had a  brood patch so is doing ok and breeding in the area.
