Redneck country

Joined Dougie this morning for a trip over to Unst & Fetlar with Skaw being the first stop. Unfortunately it seems the Moltoni's Subalpine Warbler has scarpered last being seen on Wednesday, although all may not be lost as it could well be the same bird that was present a Scatness a couple of weeks ago ? Also i saw the (probable) Moltoni's in Norfolk in 2007. A check of various sites on Unst all drew blanks so got the ferry over to Fetlar. Fortunately Fetlar was more rewarding with a pair of Red-necked Phalaropes showing exceptionally well on Loch of Funzie, a female Red-backed Shrike and a brief Water Rail also showing from the hide.

Nice phal photos there, just like mine, but a lot better!

Didn't you get a shot of the Shrike/Rosefinch as well though ;) ???
