AuthorTopic: The 'Yankee'

The latest Newsletter on the 'Yankee' brought back my own favorite memory of this historic perch. In I believe 1960, I had walked out to The Point with Giles Dunmore, Mick Goodman and the late lamented Richard Richardson. Perched on the Yankee was a Woodchat Shrike, my first ever. To this day, I still have (somewhere) a matchbox containing the remains of a pellet coughed up by the shrike.

Maybe an article on Best Birds on the Yankee?

Thanks Geof for your 'post'  Hopefully others will have read it. Yes please...always happy to have such memories for the Newsletter. Can you add a bit more information and send to me at tomqgreen@yahoo.co.uk ? I'm seeing Giles in the next few days and will also ask for his memory of it!

My first Norfolk Woodchat was as we landed near this spot from a sailing dinghy but without my binoculars.
