2nd April 2017 Unst W2 Clear

Clear visibility from dawn where 2 Bramblings around our feeders were the first we've seen this year alongside 10 Chaffinches and 4 Siskins that had presumably stayed the night. An early walk around Norwick added the Pink-footed Goose, 12 Redwings, 10 Blackbirds, a Dunnock, a Chiffchaff, 3 Goldcrests and 7 Chaffinches. Driving south we couldn't see the Crane but the 5 Pinkfeet were still present at the Heritage Centre. Only saw the usual suspects on Yell and on driving north across Unst we again failed to see the Crane.
