Barra.
Spring migration seems to be picking up. There were several Pied Wagtails around the island today (my first this year) and there was a marked increase in Skylark numbers. 5 Whooper Swans flew north over Traigh Mhor this morning and another 14 arrived from the south over Castlebay this afternoon. There were 14 Pale-bellied Brent Geese at Traigh Mhor, the first here for a couple of weeks. The juvenile Glaucous Gull was still at Allasdale.
