Woodchat Shrike in Ness

Tony Marr (BAE Marr in birding circles) found a cracking Woodchat Shrike in Port of Ness today. A real showy bird that performed well this evening to locals and visitors alike. Just the fourth record for the Outer Hebrides and the first for Lewis. Seems heading off Ceilidhing is the way to celebrate in Ness!

Some video of the shrike with its swinging tail is on You Tube via the following link:
