……if anyone is interested, we have just returned from a 2 week trip up to Shetland including 10 days on Fair Isle – a great place to see migrants who get lost!
Best photos are at
and the record shots are at
Overall I managed 137 ticks there and back with 119 species on Shetland/Fair Isle. Highlights were 7 ‘lifers’, Red Breasted Flycatcher, Rustic Bunting, Red Throated Pipit, Woodcock, Quail, Grasshopper Warbler and Snow Goose – but the weather was great with a lot of sunshine which helped the photography.
