The juvenile Iceland Gull that's been touring Barra for the past couple of weeks turned up among the sheep at feeding time at Traigh Mhor this afternoon. The 3w Glaucous Gull was still on the beach along with 19 Pale-bellied Brent Geese.

Most birds again keeping their heads down in the blustery conditions but 104 Curlew at loch hallan was the highest number I have recorded. A juvenile Glaucous Gull was keeping out of the wind on the beach at Garrynamonie
