Great grey shrikes on Texel island


This video is about a mice catching great grey shrike.

Translated from Ecomare museum on Texel island, the Netherlands:

02/29/12

For the first time in years two great grey shrikes are wintering on Texel. They are in the Bleekersvallei and the Dune Park. Perhaps there is even a third bird, in the Muy. They eat large insects and small mammals such as mice. And there are plenty of those on the island, even in winter. They pierce their prey often on spines of bushes or on barbed wire to keep it for later.

De Muy staircase repaired: here.

Bleekersvallei walk: here. And here.
