The thick fog persisted overnight and remained for much of the morning until the wind increased and the forecast rain arrived. Fortunately the rain cleared and the wind eased late in the afternoon leaving a nice evening. A more productive day seeing a drake Goosander off Norwick, a Great Northern Diver, the lingering Common Crane, our first Wood Sandpiper of the year, 4 Sanderling, we caught-up with the Turtle Dove first seen yesterday by Freda & Magnus, the first 2 House Martins that we've seen on Unst this year, our first 2 Sedge Warblers of the year, a singing Willow Warbler and a male Snow Bunting.
