Whites Thrush - Farne Islands 24th September 2012

An easterly theme prevailed today with no sign of yesterdays magnolia warbler on Fair Isle but a Blyth's pipit on Foula, Shetland, paddyfield warbler on Fair Isle, river warbler on South Ronaldsey and a Blyth's reed warbler on Whalsey, Shetland meant the eastern influence maintained its grip. But best of all came from Inner Farne with a stunning White's thrush. There has been a single previous record of White's thrush in Northumberland from Holy Island on 2nd November 1914.
