Great Grey Shrike

We caught up with this Great Grey shrike on Sunday at Filey Country Park.

We were very fortunate that a member of the Filey Brigg Ornithological Group allowed us to access the 'Old Tip' field to get close to this bird, he was very kind to ask us.

A grey cloudy day, and my pictures look a bit grey, greyer than I recall the scene ! Whilst, we were quite close I have had to zoom to 50% ( I usually do this) and close crop and the bird is still small in the frame.

It was still good to get closer to one of these stars than ever before.
