Great Grey Shrike - no more show

Despite a bit of a search the shrike did not reappear - maybe put off by garden tobogganing activities.

However, Peregrine over the garden was a good record also (uncommon here, I wonder why?) Sparrowhawk, Kestrel, Marsh Tit and assorted thrushes also put in appearances. The Chaffinch flock was up to about 100 and 8 or so Yellowhammers were also feeding under the bird table.

It flew down into here - that's useful

It sat on the branch next to the peanut feeder

Here are some of the Chaffinch flock in a blizzard
