In addition to the Rose-coloured Starling at Carinish there was also a juvenile Cuckoo present (probably has been around for several days-per Alastair Banks).

At Aird an Runair, North Uist a 1CY Yellow Wagtail was on the rocks/beach, also a small number of Lapland Buntings (most together at any one time was six).
