Shetland. Day 1.

Our now annual trip to Shetland began with me picking up first Al & then Pod & Mark before driving to Glasgow. Meeting up with Matt, Damon & Mike we boarded our Flybe plane for the flight to Sumburgh. First stop the car hire depot where we picked up our wheels for the week,

With Nark, Damon & Matt needing Pallid Harrier we spent most of the remaining daylight hours at Quendale looking fir the juvenile bird that had been regularly reported there. Unfortunately it failed to show so we headed first to Tesco's and then our accommodation in Lerwick where an Indian takeaway was ordered for all. Plans were made for a trip to Unst next day to try and locate a juvenile Black-headed Bunting that had been hanging around with House Sparrows around Belmont House.
