Red-backed Shrike, Biggleswade Common

Steve Heath discovered this Red-backed Shrike on Biggleswade Common, north of the sewage works, by the railway line. Digiscopers were out in force, but the fear of flushing the bird prevented me form getting close shots with the DSLR setup. The bird seemed settled, mainly feeding on grasshoppers.
