A thorough search of Palace, following a brief and unrewarded tramp over the Brough eventually brought a prize in the shape of a Turtle Dove, a very unexpected present. Distant, brief views did not permit elimination of the rarer cousin which was presumed. There are three on Shetland at the moment so I guess it's ok, an Orkney tick. Also added a few common species for the year for Palace including Robin, Reed Bunting and Hen Harrier.
Then headed for Skaill with the thought of checking the kirk yard, a place I'd thought looked very promising when I investigated it earlier in the week. The hunch proved a good one with Spotted Flycatcher and finally Yellow-browed Warbler being found in one of the two tiny Sycamores.
