The best I could on a wet day on Barra was single juv Iceland gulls at Cleat and Eoligarry plus the usual flock of c140 long-tailed ducks off of Craigston and Tangasdale.

After rain and strong S wind gave way to sunny intervals by the early evening I was disappointed there was no skua passage at Aird an Runair, North Uist. During a visit of about an hour there was just a single Arctic Skua (probably a 'local' bird). There were good numbers of waders and gulls (including a leucistic Common Gull) on the beach at high tide.

On my return home there was a flock of at least 25 White Wagtails by Loch Scarie.
