Surprise Tick: Moltoni's Subalpine Warbler

Having just read the most recent update on the Fair Isle Bird Observatory blog, I discovered that a Subalpine Wabler I had seen on Fair Isle in May turned out to be a Moltoni's instead of a Western!
Having there only been five (ish) records of the Subspecie it came as a surprise that I had seen one!

Now I've been able to see three (subspecies) of Subalpine Warbler.
Thanks to the magic of DNA testing!
