All the usual suspects were present and correct on Barra again: White-billed Diver and 12 Snow Buntings at Eoligarry, parvipes Canada Goose at Borve, 3w Glaucous Gull at Ardveenish, juv Iceland Gull and Coot on Loch Tangasdale, 4 Common Redpolls at Castlebay and 56 Pale-bellied and 1 Dark-bellied Brent at Traigh Mhor. Several Twite were in song around the island; the first time I've heard them singing this year. Also Golden Plover are back and displaying on their breeding territories.
