10th October 2019 Unst W5 Overcast

Skaw produced 2 Jack Snipe, a Ring Ouzel, a Fieldfare, 13 Redwings, a Song Thrush, a Redstart, a Goldcrest, 6 Snow Buntings, 2 Mealy Redpolls and 2 Siskins. As we returned home we saw 5 Mealy Redpolls at Norwick. We caught-up with the Black-throated Diver at Haroldswick and then again saw the Pallas's Warbler in Baltasound where we also saw a Whinchat and a Snow Bunting. A quick look at Norwick produced a Kestrel, a Common Sandpiper and 5 Pink-footed Geese flying in off the wick.
