On Barra the Ring-necked Duck was still on Loch Tangasdale, a Yellow-browed Warbler was at Creachan and 2 Waxwings were at Brevig briefly. 2 Siskins were around Northbay and a few Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs and Bramblings were scattered around the island. Numbers of Brent Geese have been low so far this season but 23 were at Traigh Mhor.
