Another Crossbill dropped in briefly at Northbay this morning before continuing south. Spotted Flycatchers are regular late spring migrants on Barra but they rarely stay and breed, so 2 pairs currently nesting here is noteworthy.

Although we are still stranded in Cyprus, @Bill Neill is continuing to monitor and record our colour ringed House Sparrows that are visiting his garden in Askernish and today N62 made an appearance. Ringed as a juvenile in June 2017, it stayed in Askernish until April 2018 and then disappeared. It reappeared in November 2018 and remained until January 2019 and had not been seen - until today! Where has it been all this time?
If you see a colour ringed House Sparrow in your garden, I would really like to know. You can inform me here on the forum or by emailing me at askernish.sparrows@gmail.com
Many thanks
