You may or may not be aware but down in the South Mainland a battle has comenced ? A patch yearlist competition is taking place between Steve Minton (Scatness), Rob Fray (Virkie/Toab), Gary Bell (Sumburgh), Paul Harvey (Quendale) and Russ Haywood (Quarff). Not one to miss a challenge, though not exactly geographically correct i have entered Brough into the mix. If nothing else it will be a good gauge against some of Shetlands premier birding hotspots.
Full Brough list can be found here.
Bird news today, the 2 Whitefronts were once again in front of the house and seem to be of the Greenland race, though closer inspection would help to be sure, and a Mistle Thrush was new associating with the Fieldfares.
