21st September 2016 Unst SSE4 Overcast

We saw a Whinchat at Skaw and a brief distant view of what was almost certainly a Yellow-browed Warbler that quickly flew inland along the fence bordering the road. Lamba Ness was windy but a flock of 6 Lapland Buntings were seen. Setters Hill played host to 2 Yellow-browed Warblers and there was another plus a Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff at Clingera. Another Lapland Bunting flew over Millfield and Norwick held a Whinchat, a Blackcap, a Lesser Whitethroat and 2 Yellow-browed Warblers. Haroldswick beach was windy but 2 Common Sandpipers were seen together on the beach.
