26th May 2017 Unst & Yell S2 Clear

A foggy morning with no migrants present at Skaw but a Shorelark at Lamba Ness. At Norwick there was a flock of 7 House Martins, the Reed Warbler, a Spotted Flycatcher and a Blackcap. Headed across to Yell where finally found the sunshine at Mid Yell. An hour or so at work and the adult White-tailed Sea-Eagle flew into view flying along the northern shore of Whale Firth where it circled up into the clear skies - very distant but majestic! A bleached juvenile Iceland Gull was seen at Mid Yell. On arriving home there was a Mealy Redpoll on our garden feeders.
