Migrants still arriving in Shetland

Migration continues but at a lesser pace with winds swinging around to the west then north. Birding in the south mainland over this last weekend produced a few migrants.

Common migrants turned up at Sumburgh Hotel and Grutness with Lesser Whitethroat, Willow Warbler , Chiffchaff, Swallow and House Martin

This Lesser Whitethroat performed well in windy conditions, a bird that you would normally only hear down in England.

A few Willow Warbler flitting around the garden

Many Starlings with young now and adults busy collecting food

Grub up and a spider as well
