      This will be useful for when I get around to a photographic guide featuring shrikes :) not quite so useful for the current guide which will feature shrews, thanks to my personal rules relating to the use of deceased animals for photographic guides :p

      @TeaLovingDave - deceased animals are the easiest to photograph though!

      To be honest, I might well relax that one to some degree for this thread given a lot of the photographs in question will be of freshly-deceased animals rather than mounted specimens, which is the main thing I prefer to avoid using.

      @TeaLovingDave I think the shrew was still alive at this point, I watched the bird capture it from the ground and hold it like this for a while before it finally dug in by wedging it onto a branch.
