16th January 2018 Unst SW1 Snow

Overnight snow persisted all day conjuring up thoughts of Gyrs and Snowy Owls but the best we saw were a few Redwings and Fieldfares! In recent days we've seen have been 3 juvenile Whooper Swans at Norwick, 4 Barnacle Geese at Skaw, a Moorhen at Norwick, a Woodcock at North Dale, a juvenile Glaucous Gull at Dam Loch, a Dunnock at Norwick and a flighty flock of c.12 Snow Buntings at Skeggie.
