Ive seen one of these, but was unable to get close enough to take a photo because it was watched by many birders. Did not want to scare it by approaching too close and risk being lynched. Thats a cracking image Jamie, watched mine plucking bees from mid air, a delightful bird.

Thanks Phil Wink

It has taken me 5 trips to Lesvos to get this shot mossy. Well I managed over a hundred shots of it as I spnt neasrly an hour with it, in fact I left as the light disappeared. I went back the following morning and got more shots of it and some video. Top bird and probably the highlight of that particular trip - thanks again for you comment Wink Shrike are one of my favourite species
