Red Kites and Great Grey Shrike

Headed over to RAF Benson in the heart of Red Kite Country for Sunday Lunch. Had a great meal and also great views of a lot of Red Kites. I imagine that the quantity seen here is what we will be seeing in Wiltshire in a few years.  On the way home a small diversion was made to look for the Great Grey Shrike that has been at South Leigh for a week or so. Continuing my recent track record with GGS, I didn’t see it, the only consolation was that it doesn’t appear to have been seen by anyone today. That is now three GGS I have been for and not seen in just over three months. The day was rounded off with the now regular dog walk on Liddington Hill. Only Linnet added to the day list but there was a great sunset and the nice sight of a crescent moon close in the sky to Jupiter and Venus.
