    The 2CY Iceland Gull and immature Glaucous Gull were still at Ardivachar Point early afternoon and a leucistic Common Gull was on The Range nearby. I am not sure if this is the one reported recently at Loch Sandray, North Uist or another individual. The roaming Bevy, Bank or Herd (whatever you use for the collective noun) of 6 Whooper Swans were on Upper Loch Kildonan (Loch Cille Donnain Uarach) this afternoon
