Daurian (Isabelline) Shrike @ North Spiggie

Caught up with this bird this afternoon around the fence wires at the north end of Loch of Spiggie. I actually drove right past it as it was feeding on an impaled mouse right alongside the road. Old Taxonomy stuff here.

 It was looking at a snoozing House Sparrow at one stage.

And there were very few folk there looking for it, unlike yesterday - which was nice!

Its finding plenty of mice to feed on - I found 4 of these impaled on various barbed wire fences in the area, and there was also one impaled in the thistles.
