30th April 2020 Unst SE2 Overcast

Whilst it started dry and virtually calm the forecast rain and wind soon arrived that was presumably responsible for grounding our first Wryneck of the year being seen late in the afternoon. Otherwise we saw 2 Great Northern Divers, one of the Slavonian Grebes, a male Sparrowhawk, a 2cy Iceland Gull, a Water Rail, a Collared Dove, 2 Robins, the Ring Ouzel, 3 Fieldfares, 6 Redwings, a Song Thrush, the Jackdaw, the Tree Pipit, 2 Willow Warblers, 3 Chiffchaffs, 2 Brambling and 4 Siskins.

No migrants in the local geos this morning but the Puffins were nice
