A blustery cold NW'ly wind made birding less than comfortable......not that I had a chance to do any as I spent the day at Sumburgh Airport on a Fire Service Refresher course - fighting a simulated aircraft fire. Five of us from the Fair Isle unit went across and all found it very useful......and wet!
We returned mid-afternoon having passed and I immediately contacted my AWs to find what I'd missed. The answer was "Nothing!" Little Bunting, Richard's Pipit (now tail-less) and Barred Warbler all remain but there was no indication of much movement. "An interesting Lesser Whitethroat was at Skerryholm, though perhaps not a Desert Lesser Whitethroat"
South-easterlies forecast for tomorrow........
