A juvenile Iceland Gull was hanging around close to the road at Traigh Mhor late this afternoon, at times only a few metres from where I was parked. A Glaucous Gull, probably the same bird as yesterday, drifted over the area mid afternoon heading high east.

One of the Little Egrets was in the drainage ditch on The Range this morning and a pair of Scaup were in what little open water there was at the north end of Loch Bee. 3 Pied Wagtails were in amongst the seaweed on the strandline at Ardivachar and a 3CY Gluacous Gull was at Ardvule this afternoon.
