|There's always something special about migrants on fences, cliffs etc. A few Spotted Flycatchers have been dotted around the island today making the most of any perches they can find.|
A week of westerlies and rain are forecast, not great by any means for migration (or trying to get our seabird work done), but as ever, this is Fair Isle and anything is possible. Any predictions for what will turn up in the next few days? Leave them as comments if you do.
|After three years at Loch of Strathbeg where up to 60,000 Pink-footed Geese appear, it seems a bit strange to get excited by just one of them! Nevertheless, this was a nice bird to see on Meoness today.|
