The Sentinel

On my way out to check on the wader scrapes that I have been having restored, I paid homage to the Great Grey Shrike near Wistow. The bird was seen on arrival, perched Sentinel-like on a distant tree, scanning ominously around, looking for an unsuspecting vole or Chaffinch to impale. A class bird as always, it headed off purposefully north towards Cawood at 12.45, no doubt to get up to some evil business.
