Twilight birding

Joined the hoards last night and made the journey over to Mousa to visit the Storm Petrel colony. Very up close and personal sights and sounds made it a very memorable evening and an absolute must for anybody visiting Shetland between May and July. With the rest of the night to fill, decided to tour a few sites hoping for some unfamiliar Shetland sounds. A very vocal Corncrake at a top secret undisclosed site was all that was on offer, even though that is more than enough. An enjoyable evening although my body doesn't quite agree me today.
