I'll be brief!

Easington & Kilnsea:October 6th

Barry and I set off at 9 a.m. First stop Easington by Dimlington Bungalows for the rose-coloured starling. No Sign. We'd call back later.

Easington cemetery: red-backed shrike roaming the hedgerow.  Red-backed ShrikeRed-backed Shrike Red-backed ShrikeRed-backed Shrike

Never got really out in the open so here's a photo I haven't used before from my earlier visit 5 days before. Rose-coloured StarlingRose-coloured Starling Then Beacon Ponds for a slavonian grebe.
