24th August 2018 Unst NW1 Clear

A nice bright calm morning but the unhelpful westerly airflow remains although a swing to the north ensured the roads were lined with Meadow Pipits today as would be expected. I bumped into Brydon looking for Otters at Norwick and he promptly picked out a Barred Warbler sat uncharacteristically atop a line of bushes calling away. Shortly afterwards I saw a second individual in the same garden as yesterday. There were also 3 Willow Warblers at Norwick, another at Easting beach and an acredula candidate at Burrafirth.
