From de East

Shetland is renowned for birds turning up from all directions, so some eastern gems like SIBERIAN STONECHAT, was much sought after, having not seen one since the early nineties almost felt like a tick.

Another was ISABELINE SHRIKE seen in the Toab area, took us four days to catch up with this mobile bird!! it was covering alot of ground and was seen as far as virkie willows some one mile away, but once its larder was found the bird could be enjoyed for some time.

LITTLE BUNTING, this was seen on our first afternoons birding at sumbrah.


And of course YELLOW-BROWED WARBLER, these were all over the place, gardens, plantations and even stone walls,
