15th May 2015 Unst

A light easterly breeze strengthening from the south. Our now familiar early morning visit to Skaw, Lamba Ness and North Dale produced an Otter but still only a few migrants. We then tried Haroldswick and onto Uyeasound before returning via Halligarth and an evening visit to the Airport Pool.
