Wow Marius, I hope you got a feather sample! It's a 1st-w Northern Shrike Lanius borealis and almost certainly ssp. sibiricus-some nice images for comparision https://birdsmongolia.blogspot.com/2...rikes.html?m=1 note brown upperparts, pale lores along with reduced white to primary bases and tail.

Wow thrilling record! It looks really dark... could it even be one of the more southern ssp.?

Anyway, this article could be of interest: http://www.martinbrandsma.nl/lanius-...estern-europe/

Grahame, I've just posted that query (is it an E Palearctic bird?) on the rare Bird Information thread, and you've already answered it!
