Reports of a Great Grey Shrike at Napton on the Hill motivated me to go out, despite the the dull and eventually damp conditions. The Shrike was on the wires along the old road to Napton Industrial Estate, very mobile and distant. As the rain began to fall heavier, it was last seen in hot pursuit of a small bird over the canal. Some birders reported the Shrike as coming close at times but unfortunately, this was not the case while I was there. The distance and conditions did not bode well for pictures, so below are some record shots.
