Shrike at Luskintyre?!

Post by Stuart Taylor » 13 Jul 2016, 12:50

I was talking to a chap yesterday, who had just come down from Harris and is convinced that he had seen a Great Grey Shrike on a fenceline near some dunes and a cemetery in the Luskintyre area. I told him it was highly unlikely and had he checked the books for other species such as Lesser Grey Shrike for example? He hadn't of course, nor did he have any photographs. Is anyone in that area who could check out this sighting? Sounds quite intriguing.

Further information seeped out slowly afterwards revealed that it was probably a Wheatear of course. However I put the previous message out just incase we were missing a Lesser grey Shrike.
