Just got back from Coatham Stob and after an hour found the great grey shrike :) also saw a green woodpecker, sparrowhawk, 2 kestrels and at the sewage works a grey wagtail amongst the pied wags plus a few reed buntings. On the non bird front there was a fox. Don't think it's good weather for owls though!!!
