30th May 2017 Unst SE1 Overcast

A flock of 3 Barnacle Geese present at Burrafirth were a surprise and there was a juvenile Iceland Gull on the beach there. A visit to North Dale this evening produced a Reed Warbler and a Garden Warbler.

Another eye-catching pale sandy individual but lacking the white tips to its tail of the Norwick bird. Interestingly Steve Minton has seen a very pale individual at Scatness too here
