18th October 2016 Sandwick, Scatness & Bressay

A day twitching on south mainland and then across to Bressay. Plenty of Thrushes also seen including a Mistle Thrush at Ness near Spiggie. A Common Redstart was seen at Gunnister on Bressay.

We were told a likely DNA sample was collected yesterday from this striking richly-saturated individual...
