The Waxwing was joined by a male Blackcap today here at Askernish and so had to share the apples. A Goldcrest caught yesterday had previously been ringed by Mark Oksien on 13th October 2019 at Creachan, Barra

Whooper Swans still seem to be on the move. There were a few new birds dotted around Barra today and a flock of 14 flew high south over Vatersay this afternoon. The Ring-necked Duck and 15 Whoopers were on Loch Tangasdale still, 2 Common Redpolls were at Northbay and the 2 Velvet Scoters were off Caolas.
