31st August 2016 Unst SW5 Clear

An early morning trip to Skaw produced a single Willow Warbler but again a good showing of Meadow Pipits, White Wagtails and Wheatears with some of the latter being Greenland Wheatears. An evening seawatch produced a single Sooty Shearwater flying south, 2 Puffins and a few juvenile Kittiwakes amongst the stream of Gannets and Fulmars.
