Red-backed Shrike

I took a rare trip up to Norfolk with Will Bowell yesterday morning. Just as we were giving up finding anything great at Burnham Overy dunes, , and we were leaving (had to be back early in Peterborough), we had a quick scope scan for a Great Grey Shrike which had been there the previous day. It was there, so on a whim we dashed off for closer views. As we got nearer, a friendly birder pointed out that there was also a Red-backed Shrike present, and we could do a quick pan to see both shrike species. Great stuff. Here is the RBS – a juvenile.
