13th November 2016 Unst S1 Clear

A very light frost but a lovely calm sunny dawn. Visited Burrafirth and Loch of Cliff and then Skaw and Norwick to complete the WeBS count for both sites with 3 female-type Scaup at the Loch of Cliff and a first-winter Purple Sandpiper at Skaw proving the highlights.
