Brown Lesser Whitethroat

is what I called it…

To start with.  Found on Thursday 29th September at Uyeasound, Unst. A day of exploring our island base.I quickly alerted our Shetland Nature group that this was worth a look at. Then quickly went and found Will, Tony and Richard, knowing they were just up the road. “Brown Lesser Whitethroat- might be an Eastern, only seen it briefly. Come and help us sort it…”

Well I think it is an ‘Eastern’ Lesser Whitethroat of some type and plan to do a little more on it soon. Great to find and study birds like this because I learn so much more from the process of one real life encounter, than trying to digest tons of literature. I learnt a lot, so did our group and I think others did too! More soon…
