20th October 2019 Unst NNE4 Overcast

We seawatched from Lamba Ness for a couple of hours seeing 3 blue Fulmars, 2 Long-tailed Ducks and a juvenile Glaucous Gull all flying north. At Skaw we saw 3 Robins, a single Chiffchaff and 5 Bramblings. A look at Valyie produced a Woodcock, 4 Robins, 6 Goldcrests, 3 Chaffinches and 30 Bramblings. NorthDale added 2 Robins, a Chiffchaff, 2 Goldcrests and a Mealy Redpoll. At Haroldswick there was a flock of 9 Brambling and 2 Mealy Redpolls.
