Puffins, Puffins and more Puffins

Puffins at Sumburgh Head this morning - no apologies for the amount of photos as Puffins are just far too photogenic.

So far this summer, Shetland has done pretty well with rare Terns - Little, Caspian, Bridled and Roseate (2 on Fair Isle today). So this evening went out to check the Scatness Arctic Tern colony, needless to say there were no rare Terns, but the first summer bird was still knocking about.

More BRW

The Blyth's Reed Warbler was still singing in the garden at 7:30 this morning, but was being as elusive as ever. But as I was getting ready for work at around 4 ish this afternoon, the fella decided to sing out in the open in front of the kitchen window for a few minutes.
