Over the past few days there has been a remarkable concentration of seabirds and cetaceans feeding off the east side of Barra including hundreds of Gannets, Manx Shearwaters and auks. There are usually one or two Arctic Skuas around at this time of year, but over the weekend I had 7 in the scope together at one point and there were no doubt others. Today there was also a Pomarine Skua off Brevig.

6 Whooper Swans were new in at Loch Tangasdale today, joining the 2 non-breeding birds that have been there all summer, much to the annoyance of the resident Mute!
