Thursday was my mate Bobs day off this week and we had decided on a trip to Harwood Forest to see if we could find the Crossbills.As usual on his day off the weather takes a dive for the worst and as we were driving up the wind was getting stronger, we came across a road kill with three Crows and a Buzzard tucking in we managed a couple of pics but they need a bit of work so will post them later.As we walked into the forest it was starting to drizzle with no sign of the Crossbills at first but we were spyed upon by this Red Squirrel who watched us all the way, of course you hear the Crossbills before you see them but they were always at the top of the tallest trees which were swaying madly in the wind only so-so pics.Heading home we called at Prestwick to see if we could see any of the remaining Owls,no was the answer to that but we did latch onto the Great Grey Shrike that seems to have returned although distant most of the time we did manage a couple of shots.Thanks to Bob for the majority of the pics below.
