Isabelline Shrike


Isabelline Shrike, Beeston Common – 11th October, 2015

Today was the NENBC walk around Cley NWT looking for migrants. It was a morning of moderate success, with Brambling and Ring Ouzel (heard only) in Walsey Hills, Short-eared Owl – fresh in off the sea and a couple of Wheatear along East Bank being the highlights. Well that was the morning, the afternoon was decidedly hotter! As no one wanted to go onto the reserve in the afternoon, we’d just decided to go on to ‘pastures new’ when the pager announced an Isabelline Shrike at Beeston Common! We were amongst the first to arrive and enjoyed spanking views. Unfortunately I’d only got my compact camera with me, so had to be content with a few quick digipics.




The day ended with a quick whizz along to Sheringham Golf Course, for a Pallas’s Warbler!

    Hi Trevor

    Well, for a compact camera, the first picture especially is a real gem. You ought to think about entering it into a competition!

    Hope all’s well with you.

    Best wishes

    Hi Mark, How are you? It’s a new (used) camera actually, which I’m only just getting the hang of! T
