It had been many years since seeing my last UK Yellow-breasted Bunting so when one was found on Whalsay during my autumn trip I made the dash there. It was blowing an absolute gale and the bird was keeping low in roadside ditches so the sole image here is about as good as I was ever going to get. Still fairly happy to have got anything in that wind.
