11th January 2019 Yell Calm & overcast

With calm conditions I headed to work on Yell having just enough time to check Loch of Belmont enroute where there was a female Common Scoter and 40 Long-tailed Ducks. My morning commute across Bluemull Sound added my first Red-throated Diver of the year and a 2w Glaucous Gull. Driving south there was a redhead Goosander in Mid Yell Voe.

Not the best Diver on Bluemull today as Brydon saw a White-billed Diver in the afternoon
