24th March 2022 Unst SSW4 Overcast

On walking out of the door a Goldcrest in our rosa seemed a promising start and it proved the first of four seen today. As I drove to Skaw the Common Buzzard originally found by Mike on the 14th was sat on a roadside fencepost but took flight heading off east along Lamba Ness pursued by a Raven and I subsequently saw it at Skaw. 

Millfield: Goldcrest.

Lamba Ness: Common Buzzard.

Skaw: Common Buzzard (same), Iceland Gull, Fieldfare & 3 Snow Buntings over moving high north.

NorthDale: 3 Woodpigeons & 2 Goldcrests.

Norwick: Great Northern Diver, Woodpigeon, Pied Wagtail, Chiffchaff, Goldcrest & Chaffinch.
