Great Grey Shrike at RGW.

Yes Steve, didn't see the bird myself, arrived too late. Though reported as Lesser Grey the images taken by the lucky finder show Great Grey, a fantastic find either way.

I was of the same opinion when I saw the photos briefly. In fact the finder called it as a GGS - I suspect he may not even have heard of a LGS - he's a very good photographer but he is not well versed in the rarity 'scene'. Somehow this sighting has become 'enhanced'.
