19th October 2016 Unst N1 Overcast

Work was enlivened by good numbers of Thrushes still being present including a flock of 15 Fieldfares flying over high heading west and a Merlin pursuing a Skylark ever higher. Arrived home in time to quickly check Norwick flushing 4 Woodcock and seeing 3 Yellowhammers along with a Wheatear, a couple of Robins, a Blackcap, a Siberian Chiffchaff and 2 Chiffchaffs and a noticeable increase in the numbers of Song Thrushes alongside the Redwings and Fieldfares.
