First a brief stop for a tick for Mr Howard of a Brunnich's Guillemot at Anstruther Port, which was just as well as it's disappeared (presumed dead) today. A brief visit to Fife Ness, on the back of the hundreds of mipits flying over as we watched an ill auk. Sadly not a lot happening there as the weather got increasingly Shetland-like.
Arriving in Shetland in the dark after a fairly quite crossing we're off to Quarff and a Hoopoe on the way. By the time we left Quarff we were nearly at double figures for Yellow-broweds.
I, yes me, numpty me, found a Little bunting in the sunken garden at Scalloway. OK DB helped, and luckily it finally popped up for its shots so I might not have to do the report.
Local gen helped with the Rose-coloured Starling up the road a bit, and when we got a bit more comfortable with the boisterous juvenile, we managed to get the confidence to move closer.
