19th June 2016 Unst SE2

A male Grey Wagtail at Skaw was the first seen there for some time but otherwise a tour of the sites on the island produced nothing more than a few Chiffchaffs. An evening seawatch from Lamba Ness in a strengthening southeasterly wind produced the usual suspects with good numbers of Puffins seen carrying food hopefully boding well for a productive breeding season.
