Woodchat Shrike

At 08:00 the female Woodchat Shrike ranging widely over Cuckoo Ball nr Bittaford.  Her position occasionally given away by harrying Meadow Pipit.  Also there a calling Cuckoo, Wheatear and a super Yellowhammer.

I've attached a shaky photo with another of the tree it was sitting in taken from the same  spot showing that you don't have to disturb birds just to get a snap.
