22nd April 2021 Unst NW3 Rain clearing

The northerly airflow continues and it rained on and off through the early morning when 3 Brambling were present in our garden. We combined a trip to the medical centre with visiting a couple of sites in Baltasound seeing a Black-tailed Godwit and a Robin. After the rain had cleared through a walk around Skaw produced 2 Wheatears and the Redwing and a walk around Lamba Ness added a summer-plumaged Great Northern Diver. A walk around Norwick produced the 2cy Iceland Gull, a Blackcap, a Chiffchaff and a Brambling.
