11 snow buntings were still at the airport on Barra today. At least 9 slavonian grebes were off Ardmhor ferry terminal and 2 juvenile Iceland gulls were still at Ardveenish. A peregrine gave astonishingly good views this afternoon as it fed on a hooded crow on the lawn of the garden that I work in. It seemed oblivious to the workmen who were laying pathways a few metres away.
