Photo of the Week

The Red-backed Shrike Lanius collurio is a predatory bird that feeds primarily on insects, small mammals, and small birds. It is known for its hunting technique of impaling its prey on thorns or barbed wire, creating a ‘larder’ where it stores its food for later consumption, giving it the nickname ‘butcher bird.’ As a migratory species the red-backed shrike rarely breeds in the UK, and is mostly seen along the east coasts. The juvenile female pictured here is on her way to southern Europe to breed.
