Have been birding Unst for the last few days in very difficult conditions as we are continually buffeted by gale force westerlies and rain! Not much to show for our efforts so far other than the expected finds of YBWs and Common Rosefinches.

Still, we shall continue our birding efforts and hope the wind abates. No sign of any easterlies, but we shall remain focused! We twitched a cracking OBP this evening that has given more hope that there are more birds to be found.


  1. Keep at it chaps! You don't need easterlies, the monster travels alone!

  2. Northdale is the place too !! That veery was in shite westerlies you know.... bring on the blackburnian....
