31st October 2017 Unst SW3

With North Ronaldsay scoring 2 Fea's Petrels yesterday another sea-watch felt in order from Lamba Ness this time with Al and Brydon from 7.45am to 9.20am seeing 2 Sooty Shearwaters, 12 Little Auks, c.200 Kittiwakes and 2 Glaucous Gulls that arrived in off the sea. A journey to an appointment at Hillswick was enlivened by a late Whinchat seen sat on a fence just north of Burravoe on Yell.
