Firstly nice photo, shrikes are very rare in the UK so that would surprise me.
Cheers D. Yeah, we have the occasional sighting recorded up here but rare. I'd have thought that the insect might be too wee for a Shrike but not sure.

Do you have Shrikes in the UK? We have them here in the US and this is their regular habit. They will even kill and impale small mice, lizards and even small birds.

There must be other birds that do it also. In North Texas in the spring and summer I often find grasshoppers and other large insects impaled on the thorns of my mesquite trees.
