I finally stirred myself enough to go and have a look at the Great Grey Shrike at Chilham. It didn't disappoint, apart from the fact that it insisted on using a rather ugly wire at its perch. Unusually for a Kent Great Grey Shrike it was very cooperative, if a little further than ideal. As a bonus I also met John and Liz Cantelo there, and had a quick chin-wag. A few snaps of this delightful bird below.
