Megas starting to roll in

Shetland has today quickly returned to form with Southeasterly winds raging.....

Fair Isle has a MAGNOLIA WARBLER this evening, showing very well to around 38 observers at Meoness in very windy conditions, whilst Foula in the west of the main Shetland islands has a SWAINSON'S THRUSH and a SYKES'S BOOTED WARBLER. Fair Isle also has a LANCEOLATED WARBLER whilst throughout the archipelago are a supporting cast of many scarcities, including major falls of Yellow-browed Warblers.

Further south, the pickings have been contrastingly leaner, with a BOOTED WARBLER at Burnham Overy Staithe (North Norfolk) being the pick of the bunch
