26th August 2017 Unst E2 Clear

It's a small World when the first birder of the day that you meet was last watching Bonxies passing Birling Gap earlier this year with my parents! A walk around Norwick produced a Pied Flycatcher, a Wood Warbler, 5 Willow Warblers and 2 Reed Warblers. The Red-backed Shrike had remained at Skaw. Baltasound played host to a Pied Flycatcher, c.5 Willow Warblers and a Mealy Redpoll. Burrafirth added another 3 Willow Warblers.
