At Rubh' Arnal, North Uist this morning there were 26 pale-bellied Brent Geese (including the colour-ringed bird), four Black-headed Gulls, possibly as many as 30 Iceland Gulls (at least two were kumlieni) and 19 Glaucous Gulls. It was extremely difficult to get an accurate count as a White-tailed Eagle was causing a great deal of disturbance.
