2 Greenland white-fronts were new in at Cleat this morning. A pink-footed goose with greylags was also new at Allasdale. 2 snow buntings were on the beach at Eoligarry and another was still feeding in the middle of the road at Caolis, Vatersay (presumably the same bird I saw here a few weeks ago). The brent goose flock at Traigh Mhor is diminishing in numbers; today I could only find 25 birds.
