Lesser Grey Shrike at St. Justinian's, Pembs

 Marion Best found this Lesser Grey Shrike along the coast path, St. Justinian's. The bird performed very well for about a week for many a travelling birder. I visited the area on the same day as Steve Hinton and Matt Meehan, and we met the landowner who was intrigued by all the attention the bird was getting, but nevertheless most accommodating. Some video of the bird can be found by following the link at the bottom of the post.
