Yesterday saw a good selction including: Thrush Nightingale, Nightingale, 2 Red-backed Shrike, Wryneck, Icterine Warbler, Common Rosefinch and Wood Warbler.
I don't have pictures of today's birds though, as following Sunday's late night phone call from Lerwick, arrangements were made for me to leave the island on Monday and visit Susannah and our new daughter, Freyja. Mother and daughter are both healthy and doing well and will hopefully be back on the island on Thursday. I'll not be posting lots of baby photos, but I hope you'll excuse a proud father just this once.
