27th January 2022 Unst NW6 Wintry showers

After the more persistent rain gave way to wintry showers I seawatched for an hour from Lamba Ness where despite the wintry showers my first Skylark of the year suggests that it must be Spring! 

Haroldswick: Great Northern Diver & Oystercatcher.

Lamba Ness: Red-throated Diver S, 2cy Iceland Gull & Skylark.

Norwick: Red-throated Diver, Great Northern Diver & 2 Iceland Gulls (2cy & 3cy).

New neighbours!
presumably sheltering from the storm

First-cycle Iceland Gull at Lamba Ness
First-winter, juvenile, 2cy... first-cycle - the favoured ageing terminology for Gulls changes again!
