Red-backed Shrike 25 May 2018 Deal Hall, Dengie John Sutherby 1 Female. Found by Dave Wagstaff. If anyone is keen to try for this bird I would suggest either walking/cycling along the sea wall from Burnham-on-Crouch, or parking near one of the gates (without blocking the road, heavy farm vehicles use this road) and cycling in (it is quite a long walk).
