Great Grey Shrike - Storith bird probably re-located - bird seen at 17.00 next to main A59 road. Continue up the A59 from Bolton Abbey roundabout towards Blubberhouses, go past the Storiths turn and turn on to old road section at Pace Gate (SE114548). The bird was seen flying about the trees on both sides of the main road.
