Daurian Shrike (Re-trap) - A'Ali Farm Bahrain

Further to my post below on the Daurian Shrike Abdulla and I caught on Friday 14th October at A'Ali Farm, I have found out from Brendan that he caught and ringed the bird in the same place on 2nd October 2009 (almost two years to the day). This shows that the bird is site faithful, although we do not know if the bird winters in the area or just uses it for migration.
