9th September 2017 Unst NE2 Overcast

Another promising day with a northeasterly wind and being overcast. The highlight was finding a Yellow-browed Warbler at Norwick being the first for the UK this Autumn and seeing the Arctic Warbler again today in the company of a Wood Warbler and a scatter of common migrants.
