Yellowhammers at Little Staughton

17th March 2017

After our success with the Little Bunting at Great Barford, the objective of going to Little Staughton was to try and see the Great Grey Shrike that that been there for the last couple of days. I did indeed see the shrike but it was fairly distant and, as is the norm with shrikes, disappeared as quickly as it appeared.

But luckily there was a small flock of Yellowhammers on hand to provide alternative entertainment. They were feeding on a ploughed field and when spooked flew up into the nearby hedge, each habitat providing the opportunity for a few shots, albeit a little more distant than I would have liked. A nice way to round off the day.
