During my short walk towards 'Shrike Hill' I spotted the quarry perched on a low clump of dead wood silhouetted against the skyline but it promptly dropped to the ground and I didn't see it fly off anywhere. After researching the southern edge of the hill it reappeared at 10.50am. but only briefly before flying back towards the south-east at 10.50am. I spent the following 2 hours in the company of two other Surrey birders but we never found it again despite searching many likely locations! I wasn't able to get a photo but for anyone who doesn't know this species here is the relevant illustration from my Collins Bird Guide bible.Johnny Allan managed to get off a quick shot so please click his link to view the cropped image.
The suggestions for the Egyptian stare included 'Are you looking at me' (Pat) and 'And you thought I looked odd!' (Warren) plus 'Walking like an Egyptian' (Andrew) but I think the top slot has to go to Richard who was my first overseas follower and typically sent his response in the form of this amended image.
