Introduction 

The juvenile Isabelline Shrike Lanius isabellinus presumed to be from ssp. isabellinus) had been found on 30.10.2006 at Rouxique, Sanxenxo, Pontevedra and remained there until 1.11.2006 much to the deilight of c.20 observers that came to see this 5th for Spain,  (Pablo Gutiérrez, Samuel Paz, Miguel Rouco, Clemente Álvarez Usategui, Xurxo Pinheiro, Pablo Fernández, Daniel López Velasco, Tito Salvadores, Pablo Pita and others to 20 observers in total).

Four previous records in Spain had been one in Galicia in September and the three others in the Mediterranean coast/islands of Spain from September to December between 1994 and 2001.

  • A Coruña. Mañón, cabo de Estaca de Bares, 1er. inv., 12 a 16 de septiembre 1997 (A. Sandoval Rey y K. Duus)
  • Illes Balears. Isla de Mallorca, salinas de Salobrar de Campos, macho ad.,phoenicuroides  9 de septiembre 1994 (N.F. Willis y M.S. Rolfe).
  • Almería. Roquetas de Mar, salinas, hay fotografías, 10 de noviembre 1999 (A. Edwards, J. Parish y otros) y 12 de noviembre (F. Ávila Vico y J. Remacha Lorenzo). 
  • Alicante. Crevillente, Parque Natural de El Hondo,proximidades de la charca de La Raja, atrapado para anillamiento, fotos, 6 de diciembre 2001 (M. López Maciá, I. García Peiró, O. Aldeguer Peral y F. García-Gutiérrez Castejón). 
Given the scarcity of the species and despite the basic reference for the identification of the taxon (Worfolk,T 2000 Identification of red-backed, isabelline and brown shrikes. Dutch Birding, 22 (6): 323-362) we think it's interesting to feature the collection of pictures (and the video) some of the observers twitchting the bird have produced.
