Since not many birds have not been reported in Lerwick recently I decided to go find some
Male Pied Flycatcher at Helendale
along with three Willow Warblers and two Woodpigeons
(a type of Daffodil)
In hope of seeing the Whalsay Collard Flycatcher which was spotted last week on Friday, my Stepmam and I hopped on the ferry an headed to Whalsay hoping for it to still be there.
If the Collard Flycatcher had first been seen on the 11th of May it would of been exactly 66 years since
the first Collard Flycatcher for Britain appeared at Skaw on Whalsay exactly in the same place as this bird!.
The Linga ferry
Female Common Redstart
"Whatcha looking at
there's no Blackcap here!"
And at Skaw we spotted a Chiffchaff and my first Common Whitethroat,
sadly it was quite wary of me and kept flying away!
Today I would like to thank all the people who pointed me in the right direction for finding these birds, I didn't see the Collard Flycatcher but I still had a good time and saw a new tick so a great day.
