I managed to get to Pendeen today, to photograph the Turkestan/ / Brown/Redback Shrike. Or a variant of the above. This Juvenile bird is causing some confusion in the birding world as to what species of Shrike it actually is, although Paul St Pierre, RSPB guru, seems to think that the conclusion is Turkestan.
All I can say, "it is no good asking me".
