5th October 2021 Unst W2 Clear

A beauty of a morning but it soon felt that some of the lingering migrants had departed overnight as we failed to see both the Bluethroat and Red-breasted Flycatcher at Valyie. We were soon joined by Nick Preston & Justin for the day but it proved rather quiet although it was interesting to compare and contrast the Bluethroat lingering at Jim's quarry with that seen at Valyie over the last few days.
