The Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio)

The Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio) breeds in most of Europe and winters in tropical Africa. Although a migratory visitor to Great Britain, it had been considered extinct as a breeding bird and has been named as a protected bird in Britain under a Biodiversity Action Plan.

In September 2010 the RSPB announced that a breeding pair had successfully raised chicks in a secret location in Dartmoor, the first recorded since 1970.
