Everything turning out rosie

Hoorah no more work!

Hoorah off to Shetland!

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.
