Not Having a Butchers

A recent second hand report of a male Red-backed Shrike had me searching Stanground Wash NR this morning hoping for a butchers at a butcher. No luck there so snapped some of the extant wildlife. The Willow Warbler is one of the first shots digiscoped using the A640 through my Leica APO77 and its 20x eyepiece; at some distance handheld using a centering sleeve.

Thanks to Kevin Du Rose for help with the naturalised plant and the nice people at the Diptera Forum for the fly ID.
