Record shot

This great grey shrike has been at Prestwick Carr all winter but never comes close (at least when I am there).  This photo was taken from just over 200m away with a 600mm lens and a crop sensor, giving an effective focal length of 960mm.  I didn't have a tripod so I managed by propping the monopod against a fence post.  The first photo is uncropped, the second is a big crop of the same image.

So, just a record shot but I guess it is not bad considering - at least you can make out what it is.
