First Breeding record for Bay-Backed Shrikes in the UAE !

I was advised of the first Bay-Backed shrikes to be recorded breeding in the UAE.  Theye were seen over in Masafi Wadi.  So last Saturday I got up early , 4:30am (Yawn) and set off for the Wadi.  I arrived around 6:00am and finally found the birds around 7:00am. The birds were very active and very mobile and I found it difficult to pin them down.  It was also very hot and getting hotter by the minute,  by 9:00am they had pretty much disappeared.  Here is what I managed.
