  • At a time when travel is being actively discouraged, we will not be posting any sightings that may inspire individuals to do so. We will endeavour to continue to report routine sightings that may be of interest, but not of scarce or rare birds. We thank you for your understanding and of course visiting birders will be most welcome once this crisis is over. Please be safe and sensible and follow government advice and not put our community at risk.

There were 19 Whooper Swans (9 juveniles) and the Green-winged Teal was noted again during a brief late-afternoon visit to Loch Sandary, North Uist. The teal was indulging in some head-shake display.
