Pallas’s Warbler, photographed using my new Canon EF 400mm f5.6L lens.
It’s been a red-letter day for bird watching in Shetland. I’m quite new to birding, but today I was able to tick the following species:
- White’s Thrush
- Red-flanked Blue Tail
- Pechora Pipit
- Pallas’s Warbler
- Yellow-browed Warbler
- Black-tailed Godwit
The first three / four birds on the list are especially rare (in the UK). To see one in a year would be great. To see all these in one day is quite special.
