9th October 2019 Unst SW4 Rain

Norwick proved quiet with us just seeing 2 Robins, the Fieldfare, 40 Redwings, a Blackcap, a Goldcrest, 2 Chaffinches and c.15 Mealy Redpolls. With the continued presence of the Eastern Stonechat we took another look although spent most of our time at Westing sheltering in Mike's car from the worst of the rain! At Lund there was a Knot and a Sanderling on the beach. We saw 5 Whooper Swans and 27 Long-tailed Ducks at Belmont and a family party of 6 Whooper Swans at Easter Loch.
