Great Grey Shrike

Received an e mail today via Brian Armitage from Huddersfield birders from a lady saying she had found a dead bird by her doorstep along with a headless Blue Tit, she subsequently identified the unknown bird as a Great Grey Shrike and wanted to let people know, she lives in the Southowram area overlooking Cromwell Bottom.  I have asked for any photos or indeed the body itself to be able to confirm the identification and arranged for an invite to post to this blog to go to her.  Watch this space!

OK cheers, I don't actually know if she still has the body, the e mail from Brian came this afternoon but the one to him looks like from last Wednesday.

Just checked the e mail thread and the mail to Brian was November 5th
