The weather did not look great for photographing the reported Taiga Flycatcher on Fetlar so the day was spent in the south Mainland. Garganey are scarce birds in Shetland - especially in autumn - so it was nice to be able to study and photograph this extremely confiding individual at Boddam.

I tried to get some more Yellow-browed recordings from the long-staying Hoswick bird but it remained silent. A Common Crossbill was flying around the village and from the sonogram, clearly identifiable as a 'glip'.
