Great Grey Shrike

I had a nice surprise just outside the window of our house at 16:00 this afternoon.  There was a Great Grey Shrike (Lanius excubitor),

which was on the ground having just caught a Great Tit on the bird feeder which Teres’ father has just made for us.

The shrike flew off carrying the Great Tit (Parus major), but hopefully it will still be here tomorrow.
