25th August 2017 Unst E2 Overcast

Teamed-up with Brydon to cover Skaw, Lamba Ness and Norwick together. Only two migrants seen at Skaw being a Reed Warbler and a Red-backed Shrike. At Lamba Ness a Grey Wagtail was present. Norwick added another Reed Warbler and c.5 Willow Warblers. I then headed for Haroldswick where I misjudged my landing on jumping a ditch resulting it pulling a hamstring! Leg elevated with an ice pack for a few hours but hobbled out to cover the Baltasound sites in the late afternoon sunshine seeing another c.5 Willow Warblers and 2 Mealy Redpolls.
