22nd October 2020 Unst NE4 Clear

Much nicer weather today but the same line-up of species seen including the Pine Bunting at Skaw, both the Hornemann's and Coues's Arctic Redpolls at Valyie, a Woodcock, 3 Blue Tits, fair numbers of Blackbirds, Redwings and Fieldfares, a couple of Blackcaps, a slight increase in the number of Siberian Chiffchaffs and a Goldcrest.

Dave Pullan recently told me that there were no recordings of this taxa available on xeno-canto so I've added a few of this individual including here.
