Barra.
A Siberian Chiffchaff in my garden at first light might possibly be the same bird that was at Creachan a couple of days ago. Generally there seemed to be a few new Chiffchaffs around today plus 2 new Willow Warblers. Yellow-browed Warbler numbers continue to dwindle; we had c12 today. Also a Lesser Whitethroat, 3-4 Pied Flycatchers and c30 Brambling around the island. The oddest sight was a flock of 13 Gadwall (scarce on Barra at the best of times) on the sea off Ardmhor.
We counted 60 Black-throated Divers off the east side of Vatersay this afternoon, 1 more than our previous highest count last autumn.
