The dusky warbler was still at Gleann on Barra today though elusive - only seen c13:45 despite spending me over 2hrs there - it was only heard calling occasionally during that time.

Also common chiffchaff and 2 blackcaps there,

Still a chiffchaff, 2 male blackaps and a female brambling in my garden at Bornish.

News from Tristan:-

The 1w Brown Shrike located yesterday afternoon by Samantha Hawkins was present towards the N end of the Cross-Skigersta road (croft nos. 64-70) for a prolonged period this morning (at least). At first it was feeding on the ground, and seemingly getting very wet in the long grass, but it looked better later. Couldn't get close for decent photos, though.

Also a Blackcap there and another at Port of Ness with a Chiffchaff
