Great Grey Shrike

Well there's a chance this bird has been here all winter as it was report late last autumn. However it was two days ago that it was first seen this year and has showed well since. I first saw it yesterday fairly distantly but it was a bit closer today.

Gave a great performance catching bees and butterflies (Peacock) and nearly getting a Reed Bunting on one occasion. The star turn though was a 40 second hover over the field shown in this video.
