Great Grey Shrike

UPDATE: Visibility a lot better today, for a spot of Shrike hunting. Spent most of the morning at Penybont, after yet another report of one being found near the Council yard. Birds included, Single Stonechat, Kestrel, Song Thrush and many Starlings flying over. Sadly no signs of a Great Grey Shrike.


Rhayader, (Dolgam bungalow area) The Shrike found yesterday by Steve was apparently seen briefly, first thing this morning. Having spent the afternoon, in and around the area, until dark, birds included, 10 Chaffinch, lots of Blue and Great Tits, a Goosander on the swollen river Elan, single Snipe and a Barn Owl. Oh well ! Tess and I dipped again.



  1. Barn Owl was a good record Tony – not seen one there for a few yrs. No sign of GGS at 330 but there were a few dog walkers about which wasn’t helping.

  2. Steve, I was looking around the Dolifor area, early today, no signs.
