Shetland 2/10/15

Weather - morning was very windy and heavy drizzle, though around lunchtime, oddly the weather cleared and the afternoon was very pleasant.

My last full day so I again headed out to west mainland where I came across lots of very good looking habitat, so good infact I wish I had more time there. Still plenty of Yellow-browed's being found, and finally I caught up with the Arctic Warbler. An enjoyable day once again.
