11th November 2020 Unst S6 Overcast

I spent 2 hours searching Norwick for the Radde's Warbler but to no avail - I did see a Woodcock, 2 Robins, a Blackcap, a Great Tit, a Common Redpoll, 5 Chaffinches and a Reed Bunting bearing a ring. Skaw added the 3 Long-tailed Ducks, the Eider, a Glaucous Gull, a Purple Sandpiper, the Chiffchaff and the Common Redpoll. Seawatching from Lamba Ness again proved quiet but there was a Pink-footed Goose at the point and 25 Fieldfares and 5 Redwings along the track.
