Pied wheatear on Shetland islands

This video says about itself:

Pied Wheatear – Oenanthe pleschanka – Bonte tapuit / Mortsel – Belgium / 11-11-2014

Catching flies in the evening sun, on a pile of manure.

Shetland Wildlife in Scotland reports on Twitter that yesterday at Vaylie they saw a first winter female pied wheatear.

This species, breeding in Asia and the southeast of Europe, is rare in western Europe.
