28th May 2017 Unst N4 Overcast

With a northwesterly wind forecast I decided to take a trek out west in case of any late Skua passage. In the event the wind felt due north and all I saw were 3 Red-throated Divers, 2 Arctic Terns and 3 Arctic Skuas all heading north. Two Black-tailed Godwits were present on Haroldswick pool and the juvenile Iceland Gull was again on show from our kitchen window. Al had heard a Quail at North Dale that we successfully heard this evening.
