21st September 2018 Unst N4-5 Showers

A dawn start at Skaw produced nothing more than a Siskin and a Willow Warbler nearby at Lamba Ness. NorthDale was playing host to the Pied Flycatcher, a Willow Warbler and 2 Common Rosefinches. A quick look at Haroldswick added a Barred Warbler.  I then spent a couple of hours seawatching from Lamba Ness seeing very little when Mike arrived and said he'd obtained some nice views of the Citrine Wagtail that had been found at Norwick. We joined Al there enjoying some nice views and hearing it calling whilst in flight. A look at Valyie then produced just 2 Blackcaps and a Willow Warbler.
