In a couple of Lochmaddy gardens, North Uist visited this morning there was a Chiffchaff, at least two singing Goldcrests and both Siskin and redpoll were heard.

At Carinish, North Uist in the afternoon a Slavonian Grebe was still present (near Rubha nan Ron) and a Canada Goose of the nominate subspecies was an addition to my township list.
