Great grey shrike 2017

February 18th, 2017

This bird is called “The Butcher bird” because it kills small birds and mice and impales them on thorns to create a larder. It is a rare bird with less than 70 of them recorded in the UK this winter. The images of this rare Great grey shrike were taken in really bad light on a grey cloudy day. I returned to the site two days later on a nice day, but it had moved on, but hopefully might return to the same area.
