An Asiatic Brown Shrike was found at Lands End today, a female according to the more experienced birders. The bird was found by Mark Warren and a first for Cornwall ,and me, if you discount the Lizard Shrike who's ID remained balanced between an Isabeline and Brown . A major effort was made by several birders especially Martin Elliot to establish its ID. The photo's are mediocre as the subject was mobile and elusive. Please click on the images to enlarge. Thanks to John for the phone call.
