There were an additional 36 on Frobost machair as well as 27 Black-tailed Godwits, a Greenland Wheatear and 2 White Wagtails. A Common Redpoll has been visiting feeders here in the township. Also saw my first Mallard ducklings of the year

A thoroughly wet day on Barra! The rain grounded a lot of waders including c400 dunlin (a good count here) at Traigh Mhor, c50 sanderlings at Eoligarry, 6 black-tailed godwits and a ruff on the machair north of the airport and numerous whimbrels around the island. 3 Iceland gulls were around Traigh Mhor/Ardveenish and another was at Caolas, Vatersay. 2 sandwich terns and my first arctic skua of the year were off Eoligarry.
