After completing a WeBS count at Baleshare, North Uist I stopped to scan through a flock of Golden Plover that were outside the count area and opposite Loch na Paisg. On the fringes of the flock was a moulting adult American Golden Plover. It was pretty distant and I wasn't able to obtain any worthwhile photos.

On Barra the juv Ring-necked Duck was still on Loch Tangasdale. It seems to be a good autumn for Ring Ouzels; my 4th in the past 3 days was at Glen this morning and another was reported from Ardmhor. There were small influxes of Siskin and Brambling around the island and 2 Lesser Whitethroats and a Yellow-browed Warbler were seen by others.

Just 42 barnacle geese flying south today. Interestingly, they returned half and hour later, heading for North Bay, clearly looking for somewhere to a land.
