Two birds were present around the Meadow Burn area on Fair Isle with about a week between sightings but clearly showing distinct differences between them; the first bird was somewhat brighter and more well marked than the second and spent some of its time with a male Grey-headed Wagtail. Remarkably the second bird frequented the same general area as the earlier bird.
