9th June 2022 Unst ESE3 Overcast

With a high pressure system sat west of Norway I thought the conditions looked promising enough to take the day off survey work. After a long walk around Skaw had failed to produce a migrant I was beginning to think that might be a mistake when a Red-breasted Flycatcher suddenly appeared in front of me whilst zooming around the fencelines. Brydon soon trumped me finding a singing Greenish Warbler in Halligarth. Valyie proved quiet with just a Chiffchaff and a Willow Warbler so I headed to Halligarth where I joined Brydon, Dante and Lauren enjoying watching the Greenish. I returned north seeing a Siskin at NorthDale from where the day rather fizzled out.
