Spent a good hour looking over the hillsides above Blaen Hafren but no sign of the Shrike. A lot of forestry activity and path 'improvements'. A few Crossbills, a pair of Mistle Thrush and a Great Spotted Woodpecker all appeared together. Also a few ravens and a possible female Merlin. Otherwise very quiet apart from the forestry harvesters at work. The first decent day for quite a while though so good to be out.
