September 20th 2008. Kingfisher and Paddyfield.

Spent most of the morning at Cunningsburgh, looking for a Kingfisher (about the 18th record for Shetland). After about 3 hours of searching and standing around, the bird finally showed with a brief fly-past. Also in Cunningsburgh - 3 Whinchat, 1 Reed Warbler and a Peregrine.

Went to Virkie late afternoon, where a Paddyfield Warbler was giving 'jigsaw' views in an overgrown burn.

1 Pied Flycatcher, 2 Siskin , 1 Kestrel, 1 Blackcap and a Whinchat in the Garden.

Angle Shades in the Moth Trap last night.
