Great find. I think most of the shrikes do this impaling behavour.

Every winter we get a Great grey in our local patch. Never managed to see it but there are lots of photogs toting 600 and 800 mm around looking.

Yes Lester your right I just recently saw a few youtube clips of shrikes doin' this. This bird has been around everyday for 2 weeks now in South Gloucester.
