No sign of the Shrike!

Rain, 8º, light W.

Out for two and half very wet hours this morning looking for the Shrike but not found, also a pheasant shoot in the area so everything jittery.
A couple of Bullfinch seen in the Millennium wood and several flocks of Golden Plover and Lapwing in the area.

Plenty of gulls still around on the floods and five Common Gull seen, twenty plus Pied Wagtail and seven Grey Partridge noted, also several hundred Fieldfare and Redwing.

A Sparrowhawk seen soaring over the meadow this afternoon and Robin and Song Thrush singing near garden.
