|The Eastern Subalp abandoned the Obs plantation for the day to spend most of its time feeding on the lawn, not a bad view from the office window!|
The Good Shepherd's run into Lerwick provided a wealth of interesting deliveries, with bird rings, mealworms, a toilet training seat and a laptop meaning that there was something for everyone (although I'll leave it to your imagintion to work out who got what). The other arrival was the cruise ship Quest which dropped off around 30 people on the island on Thursday who were all happy with seeing Puffins, Fair Isle Wrens and the Subalpine Warbler, along with a display of Shetland crafts and local interest.
The big question (for us at least, although I appreciate it may not be of interest to you all!), is whether my parents will make it in for Grace's birthday (they're due on the Saturday afternoon flight)... Hopefully the current SE winds and rain will do just enough to bring some birds in but not enough to stop the planes!
