Some time back, I received a call from a friend, telling me about a bird he had seen but didn’t recognise. Going by his description, I wasn’t too sure that I recognised it either. I called Barrie, who I thought would, and we decided it would be worth looking into. We finally found the bird after trudging through a few fields and it turned out to be quite rare, a Woodchat shrike.
