Oscar Dewhurst – Woodchat Shrike

Oscar writes: These were very common where we were in Spain, and I was very keen to get some photos of them. Unfortunately they all seemed to have a preference to only perch on ugly wire fences or thick artificial-looking fence-posts. Finally, on our last day, I spotted this one on a thistle, which made for much more attractive photos than those I’d taken previously!
