Autumn on Shetland, 2007

Simon Mitchie got these great shots of some of this autumn's supporting cast on fantastic Shetland. Can a Killdeer and Arctic Warbler really be considered "supporting cast"? Well when they're put alongside a Buff-bellied Pipit (or were there actually two on Fair Isle?), Siberian Thrush, Siberian Rubythroat, White's Thrush, Swainson's Thrush, Grey-cheeked Thrush, Blyth's Pipit, Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler, Lanceolated Warblers, Blyth's Reed Warblers, Paddyfield Warbler and Red-flanked Bluetail then, quite amazingly, I guess they do indeed become supporting cast.

Quite unbelievable!

1) Pallas's Warbler
2) Killdeer
3) Arctic Warbler
