Back to Basics

Back to the reality of birding the Shetland autumn today, with nothing worthy to show for my limited efforts. First up today was a small matter of doing some work ? After fitting Dougie's hallway carpet a probable trip to Unst was cancelled with home being a better option. On the way back to Laxo called in at Voe hoping for Yellow-browed Warbler but best i could do was Goldcrest and Grey Wagtail. Before home decided to check the pig field below the house, good choice as there was a Pink-footed Goose wandering around it. A welcome patch tick and later a garden tick. Not the highs Orkney are enjoying at the moment mind you, with a pair of AGP's, Sandhill Crane and now a Yellow-billed Cuckoo, surely there must be a good yank lurking around here somewhere ? Better have a look tomorrow.
