22nd July 2016 Unst SE2 Clear

Took the 6.30am ferry to Yell only to subsequently hear that 3 Killer Whales swam north through the channel at 8am - very frustrating! More Waders arriving with a flock of c.75 Curlew seen near Uyeasound and Haroldswick beach playing host to 25 Dunlin. A 90 minute seawatch from Lamba Ness produced 6 Turnstone arriving in high off the sea and a Sooty Shearwater flying north at 5pm.
