When the Siberian Accentor turned up at Mossy Hill last week it was a first for Britain and when i went the second day around 30 people viewed the bird. Yesterday around 1000 birders turned up at a car park in Easington, East Yorkshire to view possibly the same bird. Many arrived well before daylight then had to queue to see the Accentor through a fence, each person getting 10 mins.
Although this week has seen a lot of rare migrants arriving in Shetland its good to see common ones as well. Redwing started to appear last weekend in small numbers but by the end of the week small flocks had started to gather with 20- 30 in a couple of south mainland locations
