Yet another Great Grey Shrike, then Llyn Eiddwen

Chris Bird has found another Great Grey Shrike this afternoon; his third of the year in Ceredigion.  The bird is an adult, just to the north of Cross Inn Forest on wires just west of Cnwc, grid ref SN580654, and was seen at 3.40 today.  There were also large numbers of Fieldfares in the area, plus Redwings and Mistle Thrushes.
Not content with that he then had an impressive assortment of ducks just a short distance away away on Llyn Eiddwen, i.e. 15 Goosander, six fem Tufted Ducks, two fem Scaup, two male Pochard and a fem Goldeneye.
