This fine bird was found they day after the Great Grey Shrike was found at nearby Gunners Park, which itself moved to within 150 yards of this bird, providing a unique local shrike double bill. It was a confiding bird often catching Bee's and Wasp's from the nearby fence. It remained here for the next five days.
