Thrush Nightingale and other Recent Fair Isle Sightings

Thrush Nightingale Luscinia luscinia

Fibo's Will Miles found the Thush Nightingale at Pund.

Pund Cottage - the haunt of the Thrush Nightingale for the past 2 days.
It's a fixer uper! call the NTS today and you too could start finding rare birds in the garden.

One last look at this Thush Nightingale... last year the Isle saw 3 different birds.

This Pied Flycatcher was in my Garden this morning... as well as 3 Chaffinch, a Brambling, a Redstart, a Willow Warbler, 2 Collard Doves, a Goldfinch & 2 Sedge Warblers
 Over head flew a swarm of 15 Barn Swallows, a House Martin and a Sand Martin

Yellow Wagtail - Blue Headed? sort of dark too?
So lets make Elena & Raluca happy and call it (dombrowskii or in other words "Romania")
Warning! I'm no expert at the variables of Wagtail head markings.

Stone Chat - Rubbish photo but it was the first one I had seen in 2 years.
