4th May 2022 Unst S4 Overcast

Our garden was playing host to a male and a female Brambling and a Carrion Crow was being seen chased by a Hooded Crow out to sea over Norwick. A Glaucous Gull flew south over Skaw, a Redwing was present and a flock of 4 Carrion Crows were seen flying south a fair way out to sea. A walk around Norwick added 2 Great Northern Divers, the Whimbrel, the singing Redwing, the Ring Ouzel and Magnus's male Yellowhammer being the first that we've seen this year.

Shetland, early May, southerly winds, drizzle... you hope for more!
