16th November 2019 Unst S1 Overcast

Another calm morning. The Siberian Chiffchaff was still in our garden. A walk to Valyie and back produced the Great Northern Diver, the 2 Long-tailed Ducks, the Siberian Chiffchaff, a Goldcrest and a Tree Sparrow. Skaw 2 Long-tailed Ducks and 2 Redwings.

Turnstone at Norwick
the commonest Wader on my WeBs count today

Siberian Chiffchaff at Norwick
Encountered in fields roughly halfway between Norwick and Leawart I assumed it would be a different individual to that in our garden but the overhanging tertials of its right wing including a rather obvious nick reveal it to be the same individual.
