Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio)

So far I have seen two beautiful juvenile Red-backed Shrikes; both in East Sussex - one in September 2013 (Rottingdean) and one in September 2016 (Tidemills). The Tidemills bird was probably one of the most confiding RBS in history and absolutely amazing to watch and photograph.
