12th May 2018 Unst SE3 Clear

The Bluethroat in our garden was singing from at least 5.20am and even briefly displaying dancing circling a dead stalk. A sound recording of the Bluethroat can be listened to here. A quick look around Norwick only produced 2 Tree Pipits and 2 Chiffchaffs. A juvenile Iceland Gull was present in Baltasound. On Yell the Snake's-head Frittilary was the highlight of checking the Windhouse bod garden. Back on Unst this evening the 3 Wood Sandpipers were still at Baltasound.
