Found my second Blyth's Reed Warbler of the week singing on Barra today. It was generally well hidden in bushes but singing most of the time. This individual seems to have a more varied song than Mondays bird and was included phrases from Red-breasted Flycatcher, Siskin, Crossbill and Common Rosefinch in its repertoire. A Hobby flew north over Glen mid morning and was apparently seen later at Tangasdale. Also at least 2 Spotted Flycatchers and 2 Siskins on the island and my first fledged Grasshopper Warbler of the year.
