These guys use barbed wire to hang their prey on until they are hungry - sometimes known as the 'Butcher bird"

Unfortunately I didn't manage to go anywhere. I was working on a new house and was hopefully going to go to the Shetland Isles on its completion, but
I became ill with my kidneys and landed in hospital for a week, which meant I missed my trip ;-(

The spider web makes the bird looks like he is the master of a puppetshow

Beautiful focus again! I love the contrast between the harsh barbed wire and the seemingly innocent bird.
