The Green-winged Teal was still at Ardmhor this afternoon and the Ring-necked Duck was still on Loch Tangasdale. Gull numbers seem to be very low on Barra at present; I've noticed in the past that numbers sometimes plummet during stormy weather. Perhaps they've moved across to Uist?

Strange that @Bruce should mention the gulls possibly moving to the Uists because there is an unusually large gathering at Kildonan at the moment. 500+ birds consisting mainly of Herring and Common Gulls but also 50+ Great Black-backs but it's hard work scanning them in this weather. There are also 600+ Starlings and 60+ Hooded Crows (unusually high count for South Uist), all of which makes for quite a spectacle!
