May 28th 2008. Black Stork.

Spent the morning up on Ronas Hill with Gary Bell, looking for passage Dotterel, this was soon abandoned when a Black Stork flew over heading northeast, as this was only the second Shetland record (the first was in 1977 !) we came down off the hill to look for it again.
No sign of the Stork around North Roe area (it did seem to be dropping down there somewhere), 2 Greenshank, male Goosander in the area.

2 Manx Shearwater off Eshaness in the afternoon, Long-eared Owl and singing Redwing at Kergord, Common Rosefinch in the Sumburgh quarry.
