Taiga Flycatcher.

Up 'n' at 'em at 4am, to catch the early ferry across to Fetlar for the Taiga Flycatcher, the bird showed fairly well at Tresta, but with the strong wind and occasional rain shower it kept pretty much to the wooded garden - i.e. in the darkest, most sheltered bits. Having seen (and co-identified) the bird in 2003, means that I've seen two thirds of all British records ! May not sell my bins after all now things seem to be looking up.
