29th July 2017 Unst SE2 Clear

A search of the pines at Setters Hill revealed just the presence of the original first-summer female Two-barred Crossbill. A cut hay field was playing host to a flock of 6 Whimbrel and there was a Greenshank on the houb.  A beached bird survey of Easting beach produced a flock of 20 Sanderling.
