Shetland Waders

 Although migration has started off very slow there are lots of waders coming through Shetland. The South mainland is one of the best places to see a good variety.


With Virkie, West Voe, Scatness and Grutness all places to search. The afternoon light at this time of year is excellent for photographing on the  east side.

These are all taken at Grutness. Lots of seaweed had been kicked up by recent storms and this provided ample food for Turnstone, Dunlin, Sanderling, Knot, Ringed Plover, Redshank, Oystercatcher


While searching for waders this Lapland Bunting showed briefly at a distance at the Grutness pool
