Yellow Warbler - Happy 4th Anniversary!

Given the amount of Nearctic birds making landfall in the Western Isles, and the absence of any here in Shetland (with the exception of a few Buff-breasted Sands), maybe this is a good time for some nostalgic reflection! Four years ago to this very day, this dazzling Yellow Warbler was found at Garths Ness. It still ranks as the best bird I've ever seen in Shetland - but a Blackburnian Warbler might just change that!
