Barra.
Fairly challenging weather conditions today. There were still high numbers of Yellow-browed Warblers around the island and certainly in the more sheltered sites I visited there were similar numbers to yesterday. The Pied Flycatcher was still at Ardmhor. a Ring Ouzel was at Creachan and the 2 Blue-winged Teals were at Eoligarry after an absence of nearly 2 weeks.

4 yellow-browed warblers in my garden today with still a blackcap and spotted flycatcher. Also a few redwings and a brambling in the miserable conditions.

A short walk at North Loch Eynort this aft produced very little apart from a heard only yellow-browed warbler.

cheers, Andrew
