Imminent departures and arrivals

After a quiet day on patch yesterday, today seemed a good day to visit the mainland and buy some plants. After taking advice as to what and where to buy i paid a visit to Lea Gardens, Tresta and bought trees, shrubs and roses in the hope that it will encourage more birds to visit. The day started with a singing Chiffchaff outside my sons school then a juv Iceland Gull, which has been present since November loafing around Hamister.

On the mainland 3 juv Iceland Gull were present at Laxo Voe and another 4 at Gremista.

When i eventually got back had a look round patch and logged 5 Chiffchaff and 1 Willow Warbler, better than yesterday and hopefully new arrivals.
