Red Backed Shrike, West Canvey Marsh RSPB, Essex

My second Red Backed Shrike in 2 weeks, this time just 30 minutes up the road at West Canvey Marsh RSPB. This bird was even more showy than the last so provided really good photo opps as it hawked insects from the fence line just 100 yards from the car park. It was good to speak with James Hunter who by the looks of it was getting just as good shots via digi-scoping as I was through my camera kit!

Maybe I'll make it a September hat trick of Red Backed Shrikes on Scilly week after next. That's if I have enough time to see one between American megas! Well you never know.
