Ive not done much in the way of photography this year, health and weather have meant ive been out rarely.

I was offered a lift to the North of my county for a chance to see a rare visitor to our shores. there have been only about 17 Lesser-grey shrikes recorded here in the UK.

No reports on the day, so i expected it to have gone, however in minutes i had it located in a horse paddock, just as the sun hid behind the clouds.

So using my Canon 40D + 100-400mm + 1x4 convertor i took a few images, not my best combo as i had to use manual focus with no focus confirmation at F8.

Still i enjoyed seeing this attractive little predator, and it was gone the next day so at least i have a record shot to remind me, hoping to turn it into a pencil drawing during the winter.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
