Brevig, Barra.
Heard my first Corncrake of the year yesterday calling from a bramble patch. Also a Sand Martin flew north. Today 2 Grasshopper Warblers(1 singing, another calling) at dawn were my first of the year. 31 Pink-footed Geese flew north late afternoon as did 2 Siskins and at least 4 Tree Sparrows appeared on my feeders this evening. A House Martin was at Earsary.
