WHERE TO SEE_ GREAT GREY SHRIKES

Bird Watching (UK) - - Great Grey Shrike -

There are many sites across the coun­try where shrikes ha­bit­u­ally spend the win­ter, places like the New For­est, Dart­moor, Ex­moor and the Mendips in the south and west are used, as are ar­eas in the Mid­lands, such as Can­nock Chase. But it is the east coast of Bri­tain that is prob­a­bly your best bet when look­ing for these birds, with Spurn Point in York­shire and large parts of the Nor­folk coast be­ing par­tic­u­lar favourites. There are many more of course and lo­cal knowl­edge is im­por­tant, but just be­cause a site isn’t known for Great Grey Shrikes, it doesn’t mean that one won’t turn up!
