A day late for completing WeBS count for Loch Paible, North Uist. There had been a good arrival of Barnacle Geese - a count of 1,900 (Alex MacAulay had noted small small numbers arriving over the previous few days) before many moved off to the S. A Pink-foot and a couple of pale-bellied Brents were amongst the throng. As noted above there was a juvenile Little Stint, also five Ruff.
