Probable Red Backed Shrike & Osprey at the Gann

A couple from Cardiff - Martyn & Janet Williams, alerted me to a bird they`d seen which they believed to be a RB Shrike- their description was good & credible - in the bushes just over the stepping stones at the tidal entrance to the lagoon, despite a good look around I couldn`t see anything .So it could be anywhere if still here, the Royle`s garden even!
Anyway wasn`t too much of a disappointment as the clamouring Gulls alerted me to an overflying Osprey heading West.
Just an afterthought, was the last RB Shrike here recorded by the late great Stuart Devonald?
