16th May 2015 Unst SW6

Early morning visit to Lamba Ness and Skaw but no repeat of yesterday’s Otter. We then tried North Dale, Haroldswick, the Airport pool and sites around Baltasound but just a few common migrants still present. An afternoon visit to Norwick produced our first Kestrel and a late afternoon seawatch from Lamba Ness revealed a couple of large rafts of Fulmars and a few passing Puffins.
