The Rose-coloured Starling was still on the machair at Borve, Barra this afternoon. Also 2 Whimbrel on the beach at Cleat. The 3 juvenile Blackcaps at Creachan seem to be doing well.

The Glaucous Gull was again noted at Aird an Runair, North Uist this morning - asleep for my entire visit.
Also first Arctic Tern chicks seen in the colony.

An early return of Black-tailed Godwits - yesterday Terry Easter noted 25 at Loch na Paisg, North Uist.
