2016 Photos September-December

Seeing as I have posted little this year I thought I should share my photos at least until I get my blog posts sorted, so here's a selection of photos from September to December in backwards order that I just want to share.

Green-winged Teal (Top) and Teal (Bottom) at Muckle Roe during a bird race in November

Killdeer at The Wart, Sandwick in early November, only the third Shetland record

Isabelline Wheatear at Noss, Spiggie late October

"Stejnegeri's" Stonechat (subspecies of the Siberian), Fair Isle in October

The bird was a lifer and a much desired tick after dipping one several days before
