Shetland Wren

Photo: Shetland Wren

Feeling pleased with my luck at coming across the seals on the rocks, a Shetland Wren landed right next to me. I just had time to switch on the camera, manual focus and shoot once.

Apparently the Shetland Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes zetlandicus) is unique to Shetland - a darker form than the common wren, with a stouter bill.
