North Uist: at Carinish there was a family of five Whooper Swans on the loch opposite the old school and at least 50 Redwings in the township.

At Loch Sandary wildfowl included at least 110 Teal and there was a single Black-tailed Godwit.

At Knockintorran there was a single Pink-footed Goose while much further away (at some 500m) on the machair were 1,300 Barnacle Geese and two Canada/Cackling Geese. Both together within the flock with one being smaller with browner body. They can be easily picked out from Barnacles in the distant photo by absence of black breast.

My first walk around the patch here at Askernish for a few weeks but good to see circa 30 Redwing around the township and a Little Egret at Frobost
