Deja vu

A crack at the patch, after a night of south-easterlies, and just a Lesser Whitethroat and a Chiffchaff ! The wind direction did have some effect though, as just around lunch-time, it was a bit of deja vu, with another trip to Unst, this time for a Shetland first - Iberian Chiffchaff. The bird showed reasonably well in the Sycamores at Halligarth, singing and calling (like a Siskin) under the canopy and generally being really active and flitty. Golden Oriole also heard calling in the trees there.

Iberian Chiffchaff.

Rock Pipit.




Arctic Skua.

The 'perfect' number plate fot twitching Unst twice in two days ?!

Christmas has come very early (or very late) on Unst this year !
