2nd February 2017 Unst S5

The first lambs of the year gave a Spring-like feel to the day. Checked the pre-roost gathering of Gulls in Norwick bay in failing light finding a juvenile Iceland Gull among them and another sign of Spring in the form of an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull.

First lambs of the Spring!
