4th March 2021 Unst NNE4 Overcast

A cold northerly wind dominated the day. The 2 Iceland Gulls at Burrafirth were accompanied by a Glaucous Gull this morning and a 2cy Glaucous Gull flew through Haroldswick. A cold hour spent seawatching from Lamba Ness produced a northerly movement of 330 Kittiwakes but otherwise a Merlin zipped through and just 20 Guillemots were seen of which somewhat unusually the majority were seen flying south.

Many small flocks were seen passing numbering up to 25 comprised of a nice mix of ages.
