Arrived at Sumburgh just after 3 this afternoon, apparently with some luck!
5 minutes after collecting the car, we got a message "River Warbler at Quendale". Aha... That's just over there! Admittedly it didn't show well, to us at least, but a quality bird bagged in very quick time.
Given the supporting cast of two point blank rosefinches, redstart, spotted flycatcher and the yellow-browed warbler vanguard in the Sumburgh hotel garden, we headed up to Lerwick quite content!
"David the obsessed and Suzanne the tolerant" - Jonathan Lethbridge
That just about sums it up! David has always loved birding and spending time outdoors. Suzanne enjoys the odd twitch and birding holiday now and then, but generally she's happy to let him get on with it while spending time crafting at home. See what she gets up to on her own blog.
