12th June 2018 Unst NW3 Overcast

George Rogers had seen a Rosy Starling in his garden at Baliasta yesterday so we headed across there during my lunchbreak to see it being pursued by a Common Gull that clearly had intentions on taking it! Fortunately the Rosy Starling survived the pursuit and joined a flock of Starlings at the sunken garden before briefly sharing an adjacent field with a juvenile Iceland Gull. We had to leave all too soon but nice to have seen a Rosy Starling during the current influx.
