Red Backed Shrike - Vange Marsh RSPB
Unfortunately I didn't manage any pictures of this smart adult female, during a fleeting visit early afternoon. The bird was giving the few on site the run around when we (me and Jamie) arrived but luckily within 2 minutes it flew into site and landed just 60 feet in front of us. Great scope views were had for a few seconds before off it went again. We relocated it 100 yards away, again enjoying good scope for just a few seconds before I could get any sort of picture. And that was that, we searched for another 10 minutes but could not re find it.
