On Barra there were 4 juvenile Iceland gulls and 1 adult at Ardveenish. Another adult plus a 2nd winter flew north past Brevig this afternoon. A juvenile glaucous gull was off Ardmhor. 48 brent geese were still at Traigh Mhor and the 2 Greenland white-fronts were on Loch Tangasdale. Lapwings were more evident than previous days including a small flock arriving in off the sea at Brevig.
