Butcher Bird at Prior's

About time we had a confiding Red-backed Shrike in the Peterborough area and it almost goes without saying that it was Kevin Du Rose who located it. That was on the Friday evening, when there was also a Spotted Redshank flying about. These pictures were taken the following morning in beautiful sunshine. 3 Dunlin, 3 Ruff, 20 Golden Plover, c.1000 Lapwing, 5 Wigeon, Sparrowhawk, Hobby, Marsh Harrier, at least 7 Yellow Wagtails and a Whinchat were also present.

Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio)

Digiscoped with the Nikon CP995, Leica APO77 and 20x and 32x eyepieces.
