5th September 2018 Unst S2 Overcast

It was nice to awake to overcast skies that gave me hopes of emulating Matt's success at finding a BB rarity although a walk around Skaw and Lamba Ness only produced a single Willow Warbler! I then had a commitment for the remainder of the morning but was out birding again soon after lunchtime when a look around Norwick added a Pied Flycatcher, a Garden Warbler, 3 Willow Warblers and a Common Rosefinch. We then tried a couple of gardens at Haroldswick finding a nice fresh first-winter Icterine Warbler there. NorthDale played host to 2 Common Rosefinches together in the crop and an evening return to Skaw added a Pied Flycatcher.
