Here it was about 25 feet away feeding among rocks and deep vegetation but also along the quarry face.
A couple of female and a male Blackcap fed along side of it
Also in the quarry was a Goldcrest, the first seen in a good few months, several Blackbird and a flock of over 30 Twite, as well as the regular Fulmars.
Down at Grutness a Yellow Browed Warbler showed for a short time before flying down into the field beyond as did Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler
Not much else so headed across to Sumburgh gardens where a couple of Yellow Browed Warblers showed very well, while a Lesser Whitethroat kept well under cover.
Lots of Birders flocked to the south mainland with a Lanceolated and Blyth's Reed Warbler and even took time off to see a small pod of 4 Killer Whales which headed up the west side. We didn't see the Whales but had good views of a pod of more than 18 Porpoise
Scatness had a large flock of Skylark and Meadow Pipit, One Lapland Bunting and a number of waders including Redshank, Turnstone, Sanderling, Ringed Plover, Grey Plover and a flock of 30 Greylag flying south.
