Mark Oksien found a Western Bonelli's Warbler at Bolnabodach, Barra this afternoon. It's elusive but has been calling from time to time. It's in trees by Aros Cottage, best viewed from path south-east of the property. Also 2 Lapland Buntings flew over and the 2w Iceland Gull was still at Castlebay.
