3rd March 2021 Unst NE1 Overcast

A lovely warm calm morning deteriorated mid-afternoon when a cold northerly wind and some showers set in. Burrafirth beach was playing host to 2 3cy Iceland Gulls and a walk around Norwick added a 2cy Iceland Gull, a Robin and a Redwing. Whilst gardening this afternoon, a Pied/White Wagtail overflew heading for Norwick and an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull appeared on the beach - both being my first sightings of each species this year.
