20th June 2018 Unst W2 Clear

A good start to the day was provided by seeing a Killer Whale from our garden thanks to a tip off from Brydon that offshore fishermen had seen a couple heading in the direction of northeast Unst. Whilst I normally walk to Norwick and back as I was on my way to work we drove down to the bus shelter. We'd only walked c.50m when I heard an unfamiliar call and soon located a male Black-headed Bunting! Whilst it's the fourth I've now been fortunate enough to find in the UK it's the first 'Spring' male. On getting home at around 5pm I took a walk down to Norwick and was pleased to find it still present now feeding alongside a Siskin.
