23rd September 2017 Unst SSE4 Overcast

A mass departure there was! For the first 3 hours in the field we didn't see a single Warbler. Late September, a southeasterly and by lunchtime I was mowing the lawn! Toured the south of the island this afternoon seeing an Otter, 2 Whooper Swans, 30 Wigeon, 5 Tufted Duck, c.500 Golden Plover, 6 Ruff and 2 Bar-tailed Godwits and my first Glaucous Gull of the Autumn.
