Storm force south easterlies hitting Shetland at the moment, tried doing the patch when it was just force 8 ! Struggled like hell to check the sheltered cliffs, but it was worth it with male Ring Ouzel and a Black Redstart both year ticks, around the other sheltered bits there were - 4 Goldcrests, 4 Lapland Buntings, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, a Robin, 14 Song Thrushes, a Whinchat, a Redwing, 2 Blackcaps, a Wheatear, and a Chiffchaff.
With the winds getting up to force 10 late in the afternoon, it seemed only right to spend the rest of the day in the pub !
