Siberian Ruby Throat is a 10th record for Britain...
5th record for Fair Isle.
The first British record was first year male found on Fair Isle - Oct. 11th, 1975.
The next 3 have been rather plain females.
This is the first Red Male seen on Fair Isle!
Henry, Logan & I had great views!
Here is a link to Logan's blog post about it:
