26th February 2021 Yell NW3 Overcast

A morning spent working on Yell where we saw 3 2cy Mute Swans fly past the windfarm near Cullivoe at 8.48am. Robbie had seen presumably the same trio fly off from Baltasound on Unst at 8.15am. None were 'polish' Swans so at least one wasn't one of the youngsters from Easter Loch. We also saw 6 Bar-tailed Godwits at Hamnavoe and a brief visit to mainland produced a surprise pair of Red Grouse fly across the road.
