|Magnolia Warbler Dendroica Magnolia|
2nd record for Britain!
1st for Fair Isle & Shetland
I must say AWESOME!
Thank you to visiting birdwatcher & photographer Steve Arlow
for the use of his photos as you can see from my photo below...
My record shot is rubbish in comparison.

|Nice one Jason!|
Blyth's Reed Warbler Acrocephalus dumetorum
After a unsuccessful 7am. start in my own Auld Haa garden to try and relocate the Booted Warbler seen the day before. The phone rang a few times yesterday with news of rare birds...
Blyth's Reed Warbler at Schoolton,
Lanceolated Warbler caught & ringged at Da Water,
Arctic Warbler still at Pund,
But it was only the news of Magnolia Warbler that got me out of the house and running.
