11th October 2017 Unst SW3 Rain clearing

A wet dawn at Skaw produced the lingering Whinchat and Lesser Whitethroat. Swiftly moving onto Norwick produced a Blackcap, a Willow Warbler, a Chiffchaff, 6 Brambling and more prolonged views of the Coue's Arctic Redpoll among a flock of 10 Mealy Redpolls. The evening produced a nice showing of both an aurora and the milky way.
