Some more Pink-footed Goose observations, this time from Aird an Runair, North Uist: two skeins of around 170 flew S (10.38 and 11.55 hours). Also present were a small number of Lapland Buntings (possibly as many as 15).

The Whiskered Tern was still present at Baleshare (at Loch na Paisg which is behind the old school) at around 18.00 hours.

Pink-footed Geese were on the move over Barra too. I logged around 600 heading east during the day but no doubt missed others. 5 Scaup were on the sea off Ardmhor ferry terminal this afternoon and 2 Pale-bellied Brent Geese were still at Traigh Mhor. The Turtle Dove and Spotted Flycatcher were both still at Brevig and the Pied Flycatcher and 2 Garden Warblers were still at Creachan.
