News of a possible "Isabelline Shrike" came on the pager at 3:00 pm on the Friday. Luckily I had already made my way round to Tolman's cafe on the news of a probable Red-backed Shrike at 2:00 pm. I had to be on the Scillonian by 4:30. The bird was relocated at about 3:30 pm. This gave me just 10 minutes to get these photos. After that it was a frantic dash to the quay.
