A trip to Fetlar to see the breeding Red-necked Phalaropes. From mainland Shetland you need to get a ferry to Yell and then another ferry to Fetlar. I saw two Phalaropes on Loch of Funzie almost straight away, I took a few photos and went off to the hide at the Mires of Funzie expecting to see more and get better pictures. I never saw another one!! They are not always easy to see here. There were also 3 Red-throated Divers on Loch of Funzie.
