The Danish ringed Glaucous Gull was feeding on a dead seal off Craigston this morning. Despite the promising conditions I didn't see any other white-wingers today. The usual flock of 79 Brent Geese were sheltering on the edge of Traigh Mhor, while on Vatersay I nearly ran over a Snow Bunting that was feeding on the road at Caolis.
