Just before I go away, I thought I would pose a little teaser for those that might like to have a go.
First-winter 'isabelline shrikes' have given me a lot of 'fun' over the past few years in trying to assign them to race. In this context, I wondered if anyone would like to have an attempt to put a race to these seven 'isabellines' from Kuwait on Rashed's site. Some may be easier than others, and to make it easier, I would suggest that only Turkestan (phoenicuroides) or Isabelline (isabellinus/arenarius) are involved - let's not complicate things with karelini. Have a go, but be aware there may not be a definitive answer to some of them.....
