My 'Shetland Exposure' Blog will be 'Southern Exposure' whilst I'm not on Shetland/Fair Isle. . . . Yesterday, on the 18th November, Phil and I successfully twitched the Steppe Grey Shrike on the  Lincolnshire coast. A great bird and extremely tame. High quality, pin-sharp colour prints available from 6 x 4" to A3 ! Please email me with requests:

Sibe Sunday at Quendale - 2nd November . . .
Birding at Quendale on Sunday gave us some great views of 3 Siberian (Tristis) Chiffchaff which showed well for photos.  After catching up with Roger R who was also at Quendale & had been grilling the Sibe Chiffs earlier that morning, we headed back to Toab & then out for a late lunch with Helen at Bonhoga Gallery at Weisdale Mill. The evening was spent packing as our Autumn on Shetland has come to an end! This blog will now be 'Southern Exposure' until the Spring when we return!

Saturday Clean up . . .
Another great day & an Island tick! We visited the Island of Mousa in the morning & helped count seals & pups - a real priviledge! During the visit we spotted a large flock of Common Eider & the elusive King Eider amongst them. Later in the afternoon after lunch in The Peerie Cafe in Lerwick (my favourite lunching spot!), we looked for the Ring-neckd Duck again. Whilst scanning the Tingwall Loch & Tufted Duck flocks a bird flew in to join them - at last we had caught up with another Shetland tick.
