12th August 2022 Unst S1 Overcast

We were anticipating that Andy Graham would be visiting today to see the Harlequin Duck, so it was a real shame, that after its week-long stay, I couldn't find any sign of it from soon after dawn. A walk around Skaw produced a single Black-tailed Godwit.

Norwick Taing and the would-be Harlequin admirers
Today's 'negative news' hasn't dissuaded some travelling from as far away as Somerset to visit tomorrow 

Patrick Lanaway kindly sent me an image of the very first issue of Twitching with Richard Millington's portrayal of the 1987 Sullom Voe Harlequin on its front cover. I didn't subscribe until April so unfortunately haven't got the first three issues - donations very welcome!!
