Not that I'm preoccupied with the weather you understand but it does have a profound effect on Birding on Shetland and on the enjoyment of Birding on Shetland. I know you could say that about anywhere but Shetland can be a pretty desolate place when the weather is really bad cos there aint much else to do. Today the weather was better than expected with only occasional showers and moderate winds. We toured the now very familiar sites on the South Mainland but they kept coming up trumps. This time it was another Isabelline Shrike, an adult female and a very showy individual the old 7D was going 10 to the dozen. Enjoy.
