Shrike reprise with Brian!

Back to the North Coast, this time with Brian. First stop was Salthouse: no obvious sea passage, nor sign of any Caspian Gulls, so we went for another peep at yesterday's Red-backed Shrike. It took a while to find, but eventually gave decent views to us (and to the steady stream of visitors it received all day!)

Next stop was Bishop's Hide: nothing much, apart from some close Godwits and Ruff, so we adjourned for coffee!

Last port of call was Stiffkey. A long walk out to the Pit produced a Pied Flycatcher and nine Spoonbills out on the marsh. Walking back we heard a Yellow-browed Warbler and I reckon I glimpsed it flitting along the hedge line.
