7th January 2021 Unst N5 Overcast

Whilst driving along Holsens road I saw 2 Moorhens. A cold hour spent seawatching from Lamba Ness produced c.1,500 Fulmars, 2 blue Fulmars, a Kittiwake, just a single Guillemot and a Black Guillemot all flying north and a Jack Snipe was flushed from a pool there. Skaw was playing host to a male Merlin but there was no sign of yesterday's White-billed Diver.
