Local GGS

Up early this morning and headed over to Copmanthorpe to try and connect with the Great Grey Shrike that was reported here yesterday afternoon.

After about an hours searching and being asked if a 'special one' was coming by a passer by!

 I picked it up very distantly! From SE562457 looking at SE570453

We got the OS map out and figured out where it was a tried to get a closer look. A quick chat to a friendly farmer and we soon had stonking views of this stunner!

Cracking bird and a nice bonus for my York area year list!

2 Whoopers over, c500 Golden Plover and 50+ Yellowhammer made for a nice morning!
