Great Grey Shrike
Good but distant view of Great Grey Shrike at Hafren Forest, flying between high tree tops at around 3pm..... MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
Directions: From Rhyd Y Benwch car park follow source of the Severn path for about 10 minutes until reaching a wooden shelter just beyond the concrete flume where the river runs through a long cleared stretch. Shrike was seen on left in trees beyond clearing across the river.
Also, continue along path to a bridge, after crossing turn right and walk for a few minutes until reaching a clearing with a young-ish plantation on left and a bench by river, this is where GGS have been seen in the past (I am told).
