Asst. Warden Jason Moss & Great Grey Shrike in the ringing room at the Fair Isle Bird Observatory.

The white on the tail feathers give clues to the birds sub species?

Thanks Jason it's nice to see one in the hand.

What a beauty!


  1. Wonderful to be up close and personal with a real beauty!

  2. i am disappointed that we were told nothing of this bird; its age, race etc.

  3. Dear Anonymous

    If you look at the pics you can age it and tell its race.
