Great Grey Shrike

Whilst ringing today at Stanford Reservoir we were fortunate to see a Great Grey Shrike in the hedge alongside the rail track. Mobbed by a 100 or so small  passerines, the bird was visible for only about 30 seconds. That is, myself and MJT saw it for this duration. JGC caught a fleeting glimpse of the Shrike (and impressively identified it) within one second, and then spent 29 seconds looking for his camera...
