Great Grey Shrike - another prey item

The Great Grey Shrike has been reported feeding on various food items during the past week or so including several more lizards and a Blue Tit, today I watched it catch and eat a species of bumblebee. There was a report of it chasing a Reed Bunting which I had thought may be a bit on the large size until a saw the photographs on Twitter of the Midhope bird in South Yorkshire carrying a Jack Snipe, taken at the weekend.
