26th September 2017 Unst SE5 Overcast

A walk around Skaw produced just a single Blackcap. Norwick added the Purple Sandpiper, a Common Redstart, a Blackcap, 2-3 Yellow-browed Warblers, 2 Goldcrests and my first Chaffinch of the Autumn. A flock of 4 Grey Herons arrived in off the sea at Millfield where the Robin remained that had been joined by a Blackcap. A tour of Baltasound added a Ruff, 2 Robins, a Blackcap, a Garden Warbler, a Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Willow Warblers and 2 Yellow-browed Warblers.
