Butchers block

With the Isabeleine Shrike still around, i could not resist another view, never a dull moment from this bird, if its not hunting or ripping the heads off mice and birds and throwing up pellets.

Regurgitating a pellet

Observed the bird catch a Twite and brought it over to, for all intense and purposes something that looked like a butchers block

New- bird of the Autumn

A couple of days ago i called the Isabeline Shrike, the bird of the Autumn, and im pleased to be proved wrong. This Red Flanked Bluetail at Kergord yesterday was the best plumage condition I had seen , the first I had seen in real woodland habitat and this bird showed its self off like the true star it was.
