Not before time, this morning I saw my first Willow Warbler of the year at Norwick being a striking acredula-type individual. A small flock of hirundines at Haroldswick included a Sand Martin and 2 House Martins. A nice surprise this evening was finding a Wood Sandpiper at Baltasound.

Presumably a first-summer showing plenty of dusky markings on its rump, sullied flanks and an almost dusky breast-band.
