Barra.
A Mistle Thrush flew south over Castlebay this morning. 2 Siberian Chifchaffs were by the football pitch, one of which gave a few bursts of song: surprising to hear given the torrential rain at the time! A Hawfinch was at Creachan briefly as was the now tail-less Treecreeper. Yellow-browed Warblers were at Glen and Cuithir. There was a minimum of 12 Blackcaps around the island plus c40 Brambling, c800 Redwing and c125 Fieldfare. Long-tailed Ducks have been returning in the past ten days and today included 26 off Craigston.
Yesterday there were 29 Black-throated Divers and a Slavonian Grebe off Ardmhor.
