SHRIKES have been my favourite birds since seeing illustrations of them in a bird book when a small boy. So this branch of the blog summarises my photos and sightings gained since acquiring a camera and lens hopefully capable of doing them justice. Previous sightings have largely been abroad and include Woodchat in Andalucia and Red-backed in the Greek Peloponnese. Regrettably, due to vacillation and/or lack of opportunity, I missed out on the three most recent Brown Shrikes to visit the U.K.
