OK....time to get some life back intp these garden birds. ;-)

On Sunday while spending the day outside at the pool with a cold X#X ,...surprise surprise! :shock:

I spotted a bird in the garden that I have never seen before, I made a mad dash for my camera and managed to get a few pics of it. Here is my first ever GREY-HEADED BUSH-SHRIKE!!!!! O/\

I'll let the photo's do the talking...

Always nice to get a lifer, but when it's a belter like this one in your garden, it's even better. \O

Stunning pics Sprocky, well done, they are not easy to get. ^Q^
