Bluethroat

Bluethroat

Top of the list of birds I was hoping to see in Fair Isle was a Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica), a scare passage migrant. As it turned out, four Bluethroats were spotted on the island during my first day there. My thanks to Micky Maher and Simon, the assistant warden, for helping me see this amazing looking bird.
