Woodchat Shrike

 I saw the Woodchat Shrike (discovered by Eirik Adolfsen) on monday late afternoon. He found the first calender year bird at Herdlevær on friday, but I didn't have the chance before.

I saw it after some ten minutes searching in a few trees between two houses. After maybe five seconds it flew away, probably to the ground. After that it began to rain hard...not the best twitch ever, but a new bird for Norway and thus Hordaland (Vestland). No pictures, off course
