10th September 2018 Unst SW4 Squally showers

Skaw proved disappointing as I failed to see a migrant there. Around Norwick we saw a Peregrine, a Kestrel, a Merlin, 2 Yellow-browed Warblers, the Wood Warbler, 4 Chiffchaffs, 3 Willow Warblers, 3 Blackcaps, a Garden Warbler, a Barred Warbler, the Blyth's Reed Warbler, the male Common Redstart and 3 Chaffinches.

Having failed to see or hear it the last two days it was a pleasant surprise to first hear and then eventually see it today.
