This blog is about my birding exploits, which mainly take place in the Weymouth/Portland area, in Dorset. Will also include stuff from elsewhere, plus some other critters too. Hope you enjoy.

Great Grey Shrike
This morning I decided to visit Morden Bog, in the hope of seeing and photographing the wintering Great Grey Shrike. Unlike my last visit, I was soon rewarded with some views, albeit at some distance. Perseverance paid off though, with good close views in the end, as it flew in and perched on top of a close tree. My fourth species of shrike for the year.
