The Twite flock on Frobost numbered over 100 for the first time this winter but I could not find any Linnet amongst them and juvenile Glaucous Gull flew south along the beach. 42 Whooper Swans and a pair of Pintail were on the flooded areas on Bornish machair as well as another juvenile Glaucous Gull

A short seawatch at Brevig, Barra this afternoon produced a Little Auk that flew in from the north and settled in the entrance to the bay. Both Tree Sparrows are still on my feeders and a Jack Snipe was nearby, the Ring-necked Duck is still on Loch Tangasdale and 21 Pale-bellied Brents were at Traigh Mhor.
