Unst Black Stork and a few Halls

Went looking for yesterdays Iberian Chiffchaff at Halligarth, Unst. Stood under the trees and saw and heard nothing Chiffchaff-like at all - there was no sign of it today. The Black Stork was still there however, around the Loch of Brecksie area just north of Uyeasound. As it was ringed its origins have been traced - it was originally ringed as a chick in northern Hungary (close to the Slovakian border), in June 2007. It was also seen in Hungary in 2008 and the Netherlands in 2009. For more information on this bird's wanderings click here.

Didnt photograph much else - apart from the Wind Dog Cafe @ Gutcher and the carvings on the wall there & a few more halls.

The talc mountain on Baltasound Pier is increasing.
North Unst Hall, Haroldswick.
Cullivoe Galley Shed, Yell.
North Ness Hall, Yell - just north of Ulsta.
A relatively new hall, and easy to miss as its up the hill from the main road.
