On Barra the parvipes type Canada Goose was still at Borve this morning. 25 Snow Buntings were on the beach at Eoligarry and 53 Brent Geese including the ringed bird from last week were at Traigh Mhor. 3 Slavonian Grebes were off Ardmhor including one just a few feet from the slipway; probably the most sheltered bit of water in the area today. 4 Common Redpolls were at Castlebay.
