10th June 2017 Unst Calm and overcast

Firstly, congratulations to one of Sussex's finest rarity-finders, Alan Kitson, for finding Sussex's first Elegant Tern at Church Norton today - rarity-finding class never fades! Not nearly such an exciting day here on Unst with just a single Blackcap at Skaw and a Spotted Flycatcher at Norwick being seen. We also saw the sad sight of the corpse of the male Quail that we had enjoyed listening to from Al's garden a couple of days ago that Al found dead this morning alongside his house. The Quail had a zero fat score.
