Happy New Year List

Out on the patch just after first light this morning (that'll be 10 o'clock then) to get the patch year list off to a good start. Started in West Voe of Sumburgh, and this was definitely the place to be with 2 Velvet Scoters among the Long-tailed Ducks and then a major surprise, give the time of year, 2 Little Gulls feeding in the breakers - bonus. Did the rest of the patch after lunchtime and added a Little Auk and 2 Great Northern Divers (in Quendale Bay) and a Shelduck among the usual ducks on Loch of Gards.

Excellent start and cracking pics. I was cooking breakfast, home for a failed siesta then back to the kitchen in pm. Oh the joys.
