1st November 2016 Unst NW6 Overcast

After a couple of days of benign weather producing Little Auks passing Lamba Ness with the onset of a strong northwesterly wind I felt sure there would be a decent passage of them today. However, from 8.15am to 10.15am I failed to see any at all! Among another large northerly passage of Fulmars I saw 17 blue Fulmars and 15 Wigeon all flying north.
