An Arctic Warbler turned up on Saturday at Quendale, one of two in the isles. It proved difficult to photograph with all the leaves on the bushes.
It appeared several times but I couldn't get focused quick enough. Eventually I did managed to get a couple of photos, a new bird for me
It also kept flying off to other bushes near the mill but kept coming back to a smaller area of bushes that was until a car finally disturbed it and again it flew off.
Here a Willow Warbler and Swallow(8) mixed in with resident birds
A Lesser and Common Whitethroat were found down at Sumburgh hotel with several small flocks of Twite passing over and six Northern Wheatear in the garden.
A Wyrneck was saved from a cat in Sandwick and released while a couple of Yellow Browed, Barred & Icterine Warblers were good finds. A Little Tern, rare up here was also found at Grutness
