OK, so it maybe isn't in quite in the same league as the Blackburnian Warbler on this day in 1988, but a LESSER SCAUP found by Obs guests on a tiny rock pool on Buness is, none the less, a first for Fair Isle, and that isn't an easy accolade to achieve with an island list of over 375 species! Any American visitor is always a bit special and this one has given particularly good views allowing us to take in the fine details of the identification of this lovely little duck.

Elsewhere, things seem pretty quiet, although the Short-toed Lark is still here (now at Pund), but there is still plenty of the day left. I'll update later with a few more details, but for now there are birds waiting to be found!
