Red-backed Shrike, Frodsham No. 1 tank.

Gave Molly  run out earlier to day to see a juvenile Red-backed Shrike at Frodsham. A county rarity this bird was found yesterday but the news didn't reach any of the local birders until almost 18.30 (it was found at 12.30). A good find and a minor twitch ensued with two phones et al coming from work along with Wirrals finest seafaring seabird expert, Kenny D, Groucho, Fairweather Frank, Al Orton  etc. Please note some real names have been disguised as I've a feeling they should have all been at work...................
