|Migrants are scattered across the whole island, with birds like this Pied Flycatcher as likely to be on a beach or cliff as in a garden.|
|Will admiring his find (notice that it is 'birding in a t-shirt' weather).|
|The Booted Warbler was flighty at first and I only got distant views, although it posed down to five metres later on for folk.|
|Melodious Warbler at the Haa, the first on Fair Isle since 2006 and the 16th for Fair Isle.|
That’s all for today, just a brief summary as we’ve just come back from an aborted Storm Petrel ringing session. The wind picked up just too much to make catching any Stormies a possibility, but a Sanderling caught on the beach was a great bonus!
|Fulmars are fledging, although this one only made it as far as the beach at Hjukni just below its nest before it needed a rest!|
