A 2nd winter glaucous gull was on the beach at Craigston this morning. A juvenile and 3rd winter were at Cleat, where the 2 Greenland white-fronted geese were still present. The usual ringed glaucous gull was at Ardveenish with 2 Iceland gulls. Another Iceland gull was off Ardmhor ferry terminal plus 6 black-throated divers and the red-necked grebe. At Castlebay the coal tit was again by the football pitch.
