3 Crossbills flew north over Brevig this evening. Single Spotted Flycatchers were at Creachan, Glen and Castlebay. A day trip to Mingulay didn't produce much in the way of migrants, but I was slightly surprised to see 2 Collared Doves around the old settlement. Needless to say, the seabird colonies were spectacular!
