1st winter Lesser Grey Shrike
But with strangely clipped wing tips. It does look odd doesn’t it?The normally strikingly long primaries are replaced by short truncated ones. What’s going on?
Chris Gibbins sent the pics taken in mid September this year in Azerbaijan. How strange. Looks like the primary tips have been neatly clipped off. Chris says it was the same on both wings. No surprise then that guesses included both Lesser Grey but other species too. No shame! Primary projection won’t always give you the right answer.
