There was clearly a small arrival of new migrants overnight. Barra's first Dusky Warbler was at Glen, but was very elusive on the whole. Also a Common Chiffchaff and a Brambling there. At Castlebay there were 5 Siberian Chiffchaffs together by the football pitch plus 2 Lesser Whitethroats and the long-staying Treecreeper. 3 Fieldfares, a Yellow-browed Warbler and a Grey Wagtail were at Creachan and another Yellow-brow and a Blackcap were at Northbay.
