10th March 2021 Unst SW6 Overcast

After a stormy night there was a heavy swell and plenty of Gulls feeding along the beaches. Burrafirth produced an adult Glaucous Gull and Haroldswick an adult Iceland Gull, an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull and my first Pintail of the year - a female loosely associating with Mallard and the offshore flock of Gulls. Norwick was playing host to a 2cy Glaucous Gull, 3 2cy Iceland Gulls and an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull.

It looked like being a day looking through Gulls from the outset
