As we do not envisage any problem with this bird being accepted by BBRC those who have seen it may add it to their Yorkshire list with immediate effect. Masked Shrike should be added to your electronic Yorkshire list below Woodchat Shrike. For anyone not in possession of an electronic version of the Yorkshire list, this can be obtained by emailing

Many of you will already be aware that in the Report on rare birds in Great Britain in 2012 British Birds, Vol 106, page 574 a comment was made that the East Yorkshire bird in 1996 is no longer included in the statistics. We are currently awaiting more details on the reason for this decision but it may well be that those who have it on their Yorkshire List will be required to remove it. Watch this space!
