Barred Warbler - Setter, Fair Isle, September 2012
An extremely confiding bird on the garden wall and short cropped grass. More of this cracker here.
Lanceolated Warbler - Fair Isle 23rd September 2012
Found mid afternoon by the Suffolk lads this bird was only seen in flight in the field but it was a good shout as a probable Lancy as its diminutive in the flight, dark with extremely short tail. A net was erected and the bird quickly caught to confirm what we really already knew. A great bird and only my second in the UK. More of this bird here
Arctic Warbler - Chalet, Fair Isle 22nd September 2012
Came across this bird which had been very mobile all day at Chalet where it was feeding late evening along the fence line with 3 Yellow-browed Warblers. The images are not great due to the late hour but a super bird and a species I've not seen in a while. More here
Arctic Warbler, Shirva, 27th September 2012
A nice self find. Was originally in Boini Mire before moving to the Shirva area where it showed very well indeed. More pics will be updated shortly. Additional images here

Lesser Whitethroat, Stackhoull Stores, Fair Isle, September 2012

Little Bunting, Lower Leogh, Fair Isle, September 2012
This was the best photographed of the four Little Buntings seen on the isle, and it was taken in very low light hence the slightly grainy image
