|A very obliging Turtle Dove|
A pleasant day but a northerly wind. We took a drive north of Minerve checking for any new migrants. There was not much to report until we got east of Le Boisset and took the track high into the hills. A Raven flew over and after a bit of searching a pair of Red-backed Shrikes were located on a potential nesting site. This species is very much part of my youth in Suffolk so I get a thrill every time I come across them.
