Not much change in Askernish with still 40+ Goldfinch/Greenfinch visiting feeders. There were circa 30 Redwing in and around the township and a colur ringed Ringed Plover on the beach

Note:- I have already been informed that this Ringed Plover is part of the same project as a bird that was seen by @Bruce in August 2018 on Barra. Todays bird was one of only 2 ringed in the Achiltibuie area of Wester Ross in 2017. Now awaiting full details
