24th September 2017 Unst SSE6 Overcast

The windy conditions didn't make birding easy today. A walk around Norwick produced a Blyth's Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Willow Warblers, a Goldcrest and 2 Mealy Redpolls and a Brambling overflew Millfield being our first for the Autumn. There were 38 Wigeon on the Houb, 5 Mealy Redpolls at Clingera and 10 Ruff, a Lesser Whitethroat and a Yellow-browed Warbler at Setters Hill. A Great Northern Diver was in Norwick bay.
