The Danish ringed glaucous gull that arrived on Barra on 16th November was still at Ardveenish today along with 3 Iceland gulls. A new adult Iceland gull was around Vatersay township. There seems to be a few migrants arriving; my first 2 pied wagtails of the year were on Vatersay and goldcrests and meadow pipits appear to have increased in the past couple of days.
