Birding - 24/05/09

Red-backed shrikes are fab. I remember doing my stint protecting the last pair in the Brecks at Santon Downham in 1986...

Spent a couple of hours last night chasing quail. Could not hear any but I should not have gone on Saturday night, the roads were surprisingly busy. The thrush nightingales were superb though. This meant no early morning session again today. Did get out to Glimminge with the kids - pretty quiet here although there was a little ringed plover pair on the beach and a male shoveler loafing about.

In the evening Mrs B and I headed out to walk between Hovs Hallar and Ripagården. Very pleasant but again quiet with spotted flycatcher (1) about the best of it.
