My first juvenile Glaucous Gull of the season coasted south past Scurrival, Barra this morning and a second winter Iceland Gull (probably the Craigston bird) was at Traigh Mhor along with 54 Pale-bellied Brent Geese. The tatty Tree Sparrow that's been coming to my garden for the past couple of weeks was today joined by a much fresher looking bird. A visit to Caolas, Vatersay this afternoon produced 2 Velvet Scoters. They were rather distant and the light was terrible but I managed a record shot of sorts!
