Barred Warbler

(Sylvia nisoria)
The Barred Warbler is a regular but scarce autumn migrant in Scotland predominantly in the northern isles and along the east coast. On this visit to Fair isle and Shetland we found unusually high numbers of these birds - most days we would see several and one day we had ten. It is a large chunky warbler which often seems a bit clumsy as it shakes its way through a bush.
