Hard going on Barra today on account of the blustery overcast conditions. 64 Pale-bellied Brent Geese were at Traigh Mhor, 3 Woodcock were at Glen and 2 Fieldfares were on the roadside at Tangasdale. Confirmation was received from DNA testing results that the Subalpine Warbler at Nasg in October was indeed a Western.
