Lanius collurio, the Red-backed Shrike (and in Dutch "Grauwe klauwier"), is a very
rare bird in the Netherlands. The numbers declined dramatically in the last 50 years,
and it can only be found in some large nature reserves. Yesterday, we found two
adults with three juveniles in one of the military ranges not far from home.
Today, I went there, together with Iris, and we made some photos. These are the
adults...the juveniles are very shy.....
