The Swainson's Thrush at Levenwick Quarry?!

Taken from Euro twitch and Surfbirds tonight: I THINK SOMETHING IS MISSING MR LGREGOS!!?!


It has been SHETLAND which has been making all of the headlines in the past 
week and with up to 160 observers scouring every nook and cranny of 
suitable habitat in search of rarities, an impressive haul has been unearthed. 
The star of the show still remains that snowball of a first-winter 
HORNEMANN'S ARCTIC REDPOLL on Unst at Norwick, whilst an AMERICAN BUFF-BELLIED PIPIT 
remains at Esha Ness and a presumed SYKES'S BOOTED WARBLER is still being 
fleetingly glimpsed at Channerwick. The Out Skerries continue to host both a 
BLACK-HEADED BUNTING and a CITRINE WAGTAIL, with the two juvenile 
BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPERS still by the lighthouse at Esha Ness machair and at least 
two LITTLE BUNTINGS remaining on Unst. Elsewhere, a scattering of 
Yellow-browed Warblers, Barred Warblers, Lapland Buntings and Common Rosefinches.


So what's this then?....
Thank you Mr Drunkbirder aka John Hague for the photo!
