Swainson's Thrush on Shetland

We spent a fair bit of time tolerating twitchers flushing this American vagrant at North Aywick on Yell this morning before going back after lunch to find no one there. Through team work and learning about the bird for four hours previous, we got excellent views before the next lot of birders got onto to it. Yet another lifer Dan Pointon's crew (of just two this year) has got me on Shetland, after Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler last year.
