Worcestershire MEGA - Red-backed Shrike Upton Warren

Good birds can't be found on a Monday ! Horror moment when I glanced at the phone late morning to see a female Red-backed Shrike had been found by Phil Wood & Andy Pitt on the Flashes at Upton Warren. As the clock struck 4pm I was quicker down the M5 than Lewis Hamilton to make sure I saw my first Worcestershire Red-backed Shrike.

This was the 4th record at Upton Warren and the first since 1999. Digiscoping was very difficult as the light was awful and the rain was hammering down. 

Other sightings included Sundays Little Stint and two Black-tailed Godwits.

I did head to Salford Priors straight after given the weather however sightings were pretty much as per yesterday.
