In the Rubh' Arnal area, North Uist this morning there were only four pale-bellied Brent Geese (previously five), there was a very sorry-looking Iceland Gull, a Glaucous Gull and four Pied Wagtails around the fish dump/on the nearby beach. There appear to more Pied Wagtails wintering than in recent years.
