Having missed the Ashdown Shrike a couple of times I thought it was worth a longer trip to Iping Common as it seems to be a more reliable bird.
Just after arriving we were watching a Dartford Warbler when I saw the Shrike at distance flying across the valley. It was then another 3 hours before it was seen again. This time it flew from tree to tree sitting at the top all the time but always at some distance!!
Great Grey Shrike.
Today I had a walk around Tide Mills after the sun had become more elusive again. Not a lot seen apart from the usual Redshank and some Dunlin.
