We could not believe how easy it was to find the bird just a few yards up the hill by the car park performing well in a hedge topped with ivy. The nectar in the ivy flowers was attracting lots of flies and wasps and this in turn was providing food for a superb Isabelline Shrike. It was possible to watch it down to a few feet and get lots of decent photographs.

Although I have seen this species a lot abroad this was the first time I have seen one in the UK.
A great day except for Norwich getting beaten at Aston Villa.
