Island Ticks for everyone!
Fair Isle has so many first for Britain's, but we are about the last to get Red-eyed Vireo, probably the most common North American passerines or birds to make appearances in the UK.

Too funny!With Britain's 5th Thick-billed Warbler on the Shetland mainland most birdwatchers left Fair Isle on Saturday. Even my son Henry & Logan saw it! but for those of us still on the island, Fair Isle's first Vireo and yet another Lanceolated Warbler (3rd of the Autumn) were just what we needed to put some smiles on our faces.
Tony - Martin - Richard - Clare - Alan - JuddAfter a good 5 days of birding, (including a rare Sykes's Warbler) Fair Isle's Shetland Wildlife tour group left Fair Isle to see the Thick-billed Warbler found bye the other mainland Shetland Wildlife tour group guide.
|This weekend we said good bye to our beloved Ranger Teresa.|
All the birders and guests will be gone by the end of the month until next May.
|OMG! Look at me? I think I scare more than the birds away...|
