Educational Fair Isle Warblers

Still a few bits moving up here. The Blyth's Reed Warbler turned up in the box of the heligoland trap a day after the Greenish Warbler was found in the south of the island. I have now seen 3 Blyth's here but this is my first spring bird so I payed extra attention to it. Not very easy to get all the features in the field so nice to get it in the hand. There had also been a Thrush Nightingale about. Yesterday a Lesser Golden Plover sp flew over my head south, hopefully it will get re-found now the rain is stopping. Looked and sounded good for American.
