31st July 2022 Unst W3 Overcast

A walk around Norwick produced a Willow Warbler and a look at NorthDale added a Short-eared Owl. In the afternoon Dante saw a large pod (c.80-100) of Dolphins moving north off Haroldswick that I saw distantly off Norwick and Skaw.

Whilst I was working near Toft there was news of a pod of Orcas travelling south in Yell Sound that passed me mid-afternoon a fair way offshore.
