Harwood Forest 17th November

After our success with the Lesser Grey Shrike yesterday we decided to head off to Harwood Forest to see if there were any signs of it's larger cousin the Great Grey Shrike. The sky was dull and grey befitting our quarry, however the forest itself was also silent, our only bird sightings were 7 Crossbills,2 Lesser Redpoll and 12 Goldfinch, after much time spent scanning the new felled areas we came away without a shrike sighting, not to worry our day was topped off with the sight of 2 Red Squirrels at a feeder in Harwood Village
