12th May 2017 Unst SE3 Overcast

A look at Setters Hill early evening produced a dull male Pied Flycatcher, 2 Ring Ouzels and a Mealy Redpoll. North Dale added a Kestrel, a female Common Redstart and a Blackcap and our garden was playing host to an acredula-type Willow Warbler. Mike P then found a male Grey-headed Wagtail at Skaw that we successfully twitched and where we also saw a Kestrel, 6 Swallows, a House Martin, a Whinchat and a Blackcap.
