Birds in Lesvos

Potentially of interest to British birders, these fantastic shots of a first-winter Steppe Grey Shrike on Lesvos illustrates nicely all of the key ID features of this distinctive race including the pale bill and lores and the extensive white in the wing.

Amongst the other species noted were this Red-backed Shrike and Short-toed Eagle.
