The only birds of note during walking the dogs at Eachkamish (Baleshare), North Uist in the late morning were three Snow Buntings. One came down on the shingle ridge so I was able to obtain the attached photo.

Here at Askernish there were 70+ Purple Sandpipers (a high count for here) on the beach amongst the exposed rocks at low tide and 60+ Redwing in and around the township. A Coot was again at Eilean nan Ramh and other was behind the co-op at Dalibrough
