Beautiful set of shots, getting late for this species I suspect.
Well done. You are getting some nice birds in the south-west at the moment.
Super images here John love the last 2 from behind .
I didn't realize Red-backed Shrike occurred in Britain. Is this a rarity or is it a regular?
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.
Your photo's of this Red-Backed shrike are superb! Love it!I have seen one in my own environment years ago! Nice Sunday John en Sue
Utterly brilliant images - every one!! Congratulations.
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!!!
Cracking shots again John, a great bird to see and to get some shots of.Mike
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!!John and Sue
Hi mate nearly missed this one, those are stunning images John.Glad you caught up with it.
Hi!!!.. Beautiful pictures of this fantastic bird.. Congrats..
JR &SUE. You are having a good run at the moment with the Shrike's. Which one will be next, I wonder,
Cracking shots John
Great shots! I've never heard of this bird before although we do have Loggerhead shrikes here in summer and Northern shrikes in winter.
Surely this is a site well worth seeing.
Thank you all very much for your comments.John.
Truly wonderful pictures of the Red-backed shrike!One bird I'd love to see up close!Congratulations!
