A Veery good start


My tenth visit to Shetland, this time with my father, got off to a great start yesterday. A north American Veery was found the day before we arrived and expectations were high as our ferry neared Lerwick. We raced to the scene and eventually got great views of this diminutive thrush. The weather was unsettled and the crowd large and news of Orcas elsewhere, pulled us away until the late afternoon, where we enjoyed views down to 6 feet, with just three or four others!
