A Very IZZY Weekend

When i was deciding what to do for the weekend there was a few choices.A Marathon a triathlon a decathlon or a Shrikeathon,i choose the shrikeathon as it would be a lot less stressful and wouldn't involve any running. The Wall Farm Steppe Grey was a bit distant but good scope views were enjoyed. The Porth Clais Isabelline (Daurian) Shrike just couldn't show any better if it tried.An Isabelline Wheatear was found on the Gower late afternoon.Didn't think it would stay so i opted for a look around Collister Pill Sunday morning.Managed to get to the end of Fishouse Lane before legging back to the van and heading in the direction of the Gower.About an hour later i was watching it down to about 30ft.
