Shrike a light!

A message came through via LDBWS website (posted by Pete Woodruff) that a great grey shrike was seen at the junction of the upper cinder path and the main, lower, cycle track (near the Wildfowlers' Pools) on Sunday. At the risk of sounding mental, was it specifically identified as GREAT grey given the Steppe grey in the east of the country!!?

Unfortunately I was arseing about chasing waxwings yesterday (that'll teach me...) , so I didn't do my regular Sunday check of Aldcliffe.

Any news of further sightings (plus details of the original one please, Pete's friend!) would be very welcome... my contact details can be found in the right hand panel.
