info

Several documentary photographs taken in Greece initiate a gallery of the woodchat shrike on my website. Unfortunately, a considerable distance and excess of the August sun didn’t allow to take better pictures. In Poland, it is an extremely rare breeding bird (several pairs). The wingspan of this bird is up to 30 cm, weight – to 40 grams, so it is a little bigger than our red-backed shrike.
Last minute news - 05/2017
I have managed to take a few shots of the  woodchat shrike in Poland! Although the quality of the photos does not arouse much admiration, but they are better those documentary taken in Greece. The  woodchat shrikes were quite skittish and there were many people willing to photograph her. Nothing more I could do this time. The gallery has been rebuilt, but with photos of such a bad quality it does not go to the news..

In Bulgaria, several photos of the woodchat shrike were taken. They did not improve the quality of the gallery but introduced a variety of photos in the gallery.
