31st October 2021 Unst SW4 Overcast

With what felt like the first decent southeasterly airflow overnight my hopes were high and I wasn't disappointed as I found a Pallas's Warbler in Andrew's garden at Norwick beach that I subsequently encountered again at Valyie. There were also Thrushes and Finches again overflying and/or dropping in throughout the morning. The Common Redstart and a Willow Warbler were again seen so might stay into November now...
