Great Grey Shrike

The last three days have been very wintery in Oslo and it has not been very birdy but a Great Grey Shrike has twice shown very well by the road in Maridalen. It was clearly looking for rodents on the ground and has given me some of my very best ever views of this normally shy species.

Great Grey Shrike (varsler)

the wing bar shows this to be a 1cy

it seemed to be an extremely long tailed individual

and looking towards the lake. The stubble fields were where the Woodcocks were last week but I suspect they have all moved on now
