I think that's correct but I'm a little bewildered with the large grey shrike taxonomy - I wasn't sure if a ssp. of Great or Southern. From a listers point of view that could mean seeing L.meridionalis (Iberian in the Collin's) in Iberia and L.excubitor in N. Africa (or in the winter on the east coast of Britain
) I know its a complex group but is it all cleared up now - from a WP perspective?
