Ramsey - woodchat shrike

Lisa found a fine male woodchat shrike while out monitoring chough this morning. It is only the 3rd record since regular records began in 1992. Also today - female black redstart, first grasshopper warbler of the year, good fall of willow warblers and chiffchaffs, notable hirundine passage this afternoon included swallow, sand and house martin, 11 blackcaps and 4 red kites.
