Shipley Bridge/Avon Dam

An exciting late afternoon walk up the valley with a juvenile Marsh Harrier quartering the slopes and a mobile Red-backed Shrike below the quarry. Both unexpected!  Also, good numbers of Chiffchaffs and a few Blackcaps about, plus a Sparrowhawk, a Kestrel and the usual Linnets, Stonechats, Meadow Pipits, Dipper etc.
