2 Siberian Chiffchaffs were still by the football pitch at Castlebay; they've been present for several weeks now and look likely to spend the winter here. The Treecreeper was still there too plus a Common Chiffchaff. A Pink-footed Goose was on Loch Tangasdale with Greylags. There seemed to have been a further influx of Chaffinches and Redwings around the island.
