7th September 2020 Unst SW6 Rain clearing

A wet and windy day albeit the rain eventually cleared mid-afternoon. I tried a few of the north end sites but the only birds of note that I saw were the lingering Northern Eider at Skaw and the Greenish Warbler at Valyie.

Despite showing closer to shore today I still found it difficult to be certain of it nasal position that seems easier to discern from images albeit only when the head is captured in exact profile. For more details see BBRC here & the Dutch Birding article here.
