Return to the Great Grey Shrike - Napton on the Hill

I popped over to Napton (1400 - 1600) to see if I could improve on last Tuesdays images of the Great Grey Shrike. The bird seemed more elusive today, and it was about an hour before it was spotted on the wires. Annoyingly, while everyone was moving closer to the derelict buildings, the Shrike took flight and landed on the posts, where we had all originally been standing! Cest le vie! The moral here is stay independent and don't follow the crowd! As you can see, I could not improve and had to settle for the typical "wires" view!

It's going to be very hard to get shots anywhere near the cracking ones you took before.

I was perhaps hoping for a flight shot (like your excellent ones) or a pellet ejection or eating a mouse! Nearly got it on the posts again - I followed the crowd, had I stayed put BINGO! Cest le vie!
