Yesterday a Mega bird turned up mid afternoon at Mossy Hill, Scousburgh, with most twitchers leaving what ever they were viewing at the times and heading straight there to see a Siberian Accentor
We couldn't make the trip at the time and as we headed home numerous cars came speeding passed us headed to Mossy hill quarry. Apparently around 100 people arrived very quickly.
This bird was found in the larger quarry by Judd Hunt and Hugh Harrop, this was a 1st for Britain and what a bird to find.
The prospect of the bird being present for a second day didn't look good as it constantly fed, building up energy for another long trip and it was a clear night.
So when news started to come in today I was hoping that it would stay until the afternoon at least as i was delivering a photography course in Lerwick in the morning.
This bird was extremely confiding sometimes coming as close as 20 feet and other times it flew out of the quarry but soon returned
