Lesser Grey Shrike in Devon

I simply couldn't resist going to see the Lesser Grey Shrike near Mount Batten Point (Plymouth, Devon). The original plan was to dash over yesterday but I ended up spending all afternoon on calls with some overseas colleagues; thankfully the bird was still there this morning. Here's a video clip and 1 pic of about 1000, so there'll be a lot more appearing on here soon:

I'm hoping for some patch action soon as 300-400 Yellow-browed Warblers have arrived in the UK over the last couple of days. This is both early and on unprecedented scale - it seems they've had another bumper breeding year. Brendan Sheils had one in Charmouth in the evening of 20th and it was still present this morning; they aren't far away from us here...
