18th September 2019 Unst N1 Overcast

A walk around Norwick produced 3 Swallows, the Pied Flycatcher, a Blackcap, 3 Chiffchaffs, the 5 Tree Sparrows and a flyover Lapland Bunting that was flying east. North Dale added my first Lesser Whitethroat of the Autumn and 2 Willow Warblers and Haroldswick a Ruff. I spent the afternoon walking from the north end of the Loch of Cliff to North Water and out to the west coast, south to Flubersgerdie and returning to Houlland. The highlight was 5 Lapland Buntings flying west over Libbers Hill.
