Garden Year-list Boost.

Wasn't very optimistic about today at all - thick fog all around South Mainland, however after a Mistle Thrush flew over the Garden at 10:40 this morning, things started to look up. Black-tailed Godwit on Virkie and Linnet in Virkie Willows, 6 Redwing at Sumburgh Head, a Wood Pigeon, Redwing, 3 Fieldfare and 2 Wheatear at Grutness and Greenfinch, 2 Chaffinch, Collared Dove and Fieldfare in the Garden (Mistle Thrush, Chaffinch and Collared Dove - all Garden Year-ticks + Mistle Thrush being a full on Garden Tick and Scatness Tick).

Collared Dove.



Redwing (in the fog !).

Wheatear (1st of the spring).
