Great Grey Shrike - Cannock Chase (Lanius excubitor)

I was especially pleased with this flight shot as they are extremely hit and miss. The only way I've managed to do it is by predicting where the bird is going to fly, guessing and setting manual focus and then attempting to hit the shutter release as it flies through the frame.
