4th September 2020 Unst WSW6 Overcast

It felt like the first strong southwesterly blow of the Autumn. Skaw was still playing host to  the Northern Eider, a Kestrel and the Reed Warbler and it was immediately noticeable there'd been an arrival of Wheatears presumably of northwestern origin. A walk around Norwick produced 2 Willow Warblers and a flyover Lapland Bunting and at Burrafirth I could only find a Willow Warbler. A trawl through several flocks of Golden Plover and a walk along several beaches and a couple of headlands went unrewarded!
