7th September 2018 Unst NE4 Overcast

Birding proved tricky today in the windier than forecast conditions with sheltered areas being at a premium. Skaw played host to just a single Garden Warbler and a single Willow Warbler. Norwick added 2 Willow Warblers and a very brief view of the Blyth's Reed Warbler that was still calling occasionally. A drive down to Lund produced a Barred Warbler and a Garden Warbler and there was another Garden Warbler at Westing. On our return north a look at a few Baltasound sites revealed the presence of just a Willow Warbler and a Spotted Flycatcher.
