16th December 2019 Unst Calm and clear

A beautiful day being absolutely calm all day. The Tree Sparrow and 2 Snow Buntings were still behind our house. A walk out to Petester produced a Common Scoter, a juvenile Iceland Gull, 6 Glaucous Gulls (2 ad, 2w & 3 juv) and a 'Viking' Gull. Haroldswick added a Woodcock and a Long-eared Owl and at Baltasound School there was a juvenile Whooper Swan. As we drove home there was a Snow Bunting roadside at Saxa Vord camp.
