A Great Grey Shrike was a guest today on our bird table, a relatively rare guest in the garden. Although it is virtually annual breeding bird in the northern part of our county, it is not particularly common. This was our third observation on the farm.
Despite persistent snowfall and freezing temperatures we also heard a black tit singing, it sat as usual at the top of a fir tree. It is still full winter but it shows in the light that it faces towards brighter times.
