I've just staggered back to London after an excellent weekend's wildlife exploring in Shetland. More to follow once I've unpacked and triaged the steaming pile of emails that await. To whet your appetites I attach a photo. Roger Riddington (editor of the esteemed British Birds) aka Strider is on the left, and Martin Garner (uber-birder and author of Frontiers in Birding) is on the right. We haven't decided which hobbit he is yet. They're looking for a rostrata Redpoll.
I think it badly needs a caption. Please post your suggestions.
