It's good to be working on Unst for a few days as it allows me to check a few sites for migrants before starting work for the day. A Willow Warbler in our garden was a promising start to the day. Skaw produced a Blackcap, a Chiffchaff and a Spotted Flycatcher and Northdale added a Common Whitethroat. As I walked up the road to Valyie I could hear a singing Marsh Warbler that was showing on and off. I also saw the Common Crane in the nearby mires, a Song Thrush, a Blackcap, a Garden Warbler and a Lesser Whitethroat.
