Unusual Great Grey Shrike

Permalink 14:29:41, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project  

While conducting a survey in the south of the island on Saturday afternoon, Abdulla trapped a Great Grey Shrike. It proved to be the largest individual trapped here so far. However further to this the wing pattern as can be seen below was totally unlike any other bird caught thus far.
The Great Grey Shrikes passing through Bahrain don't conform to any of the races listed in the Svensson ringers guide and we are a little puzzled as to the racial origins. I welcome comments please
