Wotter place !

Another fine day started well with 3 Wheatears from the house, with 2 males in full display mode to a rather bemused female. 3 Willow Warblers and a Lesser Whitethroat were new with the later showing very well, and a Redwing through.

According to Birds of Shetland the earliest recorded date for Lesser Whitethroat was 20th April 1968 on Fair Isle.Another 5 Willow Warblers and a lone Chiffchaff made up the phyllosc count in the small conifer plantation and a grand total of 2 Robins also on patch.

Pride of place went to an Otter that i watched yesterday and today managed to get close enough for some decent shots.
