Knot alot

Since the relative highs of Wednesday its as you would expect, very quiet. A trip into Lerwick yesterday meant a visit to the catch, again no white-winged gulls ? This must be a record low for Shetland with just the odd record here and there. A text off Jon also yesterday to let me know the Black-throated Diver had now made its way up to Skaw, but returned in fading light so no prospects of grabbing a photo. Dougie and his better half visited today and a quick scoot round Brough only produced the Knot still at the Houb. Even the Greylags in front of the house have dwindled to a measly 5 from the dizzy heights of 55.  It can't be to long until something half decent turns up surely ?
