RED-BACKED SHRIKE

FOLLOWING ON FROM THE ISABELLINE SHRIKE AT PENDEEN, I CAUGHT 
UP WITH THE VERY OBLIGING RED-BACKED SHRIKE AT TREGESEAL.

  4. I didn't realize Red-backed Shrike occurred in Britain. Is this a rarity or is it a regular?

  5. Superb images John and Sue, I went for both today (Saturday) managed only the Isabelline. The Redback is very close to where I live but work and weather got in the way.

  8. beautiful images of a bird I have never seen before. it's always nice to photograph them in a tree or with a natural background. I always cheat with peanuts and trick them in to getting their picture taken!!!

  10. We have just deleted the ridiculous comment about American women and in no way do we share his views.
    Don't know who this man is, high-jacking our blog and we hope he hasn't offended anyone. What an idiot!!
