Great Grey Shrike @ Hafren Forest

One found by Tony Cross this afternoon, where the Afon Biga meets the Clywedog reservoir. It can be very elusive for long periods of time, but with a bit of patients it does occasionally perch relatively close to the road!!

This follows a good run of birds in monts over the past week or so, inc:

Great Grey Shrike @ Carno
Bittern, 3 Little Egrets and 5+ Water Rails @ Dolydd Hafren
2+ Short-eared Owls, and numerous Jack Snipe and Woodcock @ Llyn Hir
Lesser Spotted Woodpecker @ Caerhowel
40+ Brambling @ Llanidloes
Possible Cetti's Warbler, Little Egret, Greenshank, 3+ Green Sandpipers @ LCyD
Hen Harrier and 4+ Red Grouse @ Glaslyn

I know none of these are 'megas' but believe me they are all very good birds for this county, just ask Marc!!!
