Finally destination was the Wykeham/Troutsdale area for the big Gossie. It's always a pleasure to bird in this scenic area & everytime I've visited it the Goshawks have put on a great show - today was no exception. 5 Goshawks logged including some close views of adult & imm male birds, at one point 3 males were in the air together. Also in the area: 5 Common Buzzards, Grey Wagtail, 2 Kingfisher & several Siskin.
A successful twitch of the Great Grey Shrike in the area rounded off a memorable day and put the icing on the cake.

Not the wintering bird from my work patch, but an imm Shag of the Scarborough variety
