Male Red-breasted Flycatcher

A superb adult male Red-breasted Flycatcher spent a couple of days at Levenwick and provided some nice photographic opportunities. Thanks to Wendy for allowing us in to the garden. I also had great views of the White's Thrush earlier in the week at Kergord but it proved a nightmare to photograph. This would have been bird of the week but beating it by a country mile in Shetland terms was a Long-tailed Tit which moved between Sumburgh, Scatness and Toab. Only the third-ever confirmed record for Shetland and a Shetland tick for myself and most others.
