24th July 2016 Unst S1

Sea-watched from 5.15am to 6.20am at Lamba Ness when thick fog rolled-in seeing a Sooty Shearwater fly north at 5.38am. Then walked Skaw seeing 2 Sanderling on the beach and a Green Sandpiper in the geo. Touring various Wader sites on the island produced just a Bar-tailed Godwit and the two male Common Crossbills were still at Setters Hill. Sea-watched from Lamba Ness from 6pm to 8.30pm seeing a Minke Whale swim north, 2 Harbour Porpoises and 2 Manx Shearwaters fly north and 3 fly south.
