17th September 2018 Unst SW3

A Common Rosefinch was present briefly literally at dawn in our garden. As I drove through Norwick a flock of 17 Pinkfeet were present. A Blackcap was the only migrant I saw at Skaw and there was a Kestrel, 5 Blackcaps and 3 Willow Warblers seen on a quick look at Valyie. Late this afternoon a Yellow-browed Warbler and 2 Willow Warblers were seen at Uyeasound.

Despite an ISO2000 setting the light was insufficient to obtain a sharp image

A few minutes later and a setting of ISO4000 wasn't much better!
