28th July 2020 Unst

A wet and windy morning so I waited for the rain to ease before heading to Lamba Ness where I saw 2 Manx Shearwaters fly north, 1 south and c.500 Puffins fly north. Skaw produced my first Common Swift of the year - a juvenile. A walk around Norwick added a Merlin, 10 Swallows and a Mealy Redpoll.
