8th July 2018 Unst W4 Overcast

A tight flock of 30 Redshank accompanied by 2 Turnstone seen flying in off the sea and straight inland were my first returning waders of the season and an hour's seawatch from Lamba Ness once the drizzly rain had cleared through this morning produced 1,140 Puffins, 195 Guillemots, just 4 Razorbills, 25 Bonxies and a single Arctic Skua all flying north.
