Uist ploughing demo

A couple of days midweek on Uists. Machair LIFE+ did a shallow ploughing demonstration to crofters which meant a bit of time was spent at Balranald. Thereby Hoopoe, several (13 reported) Lapland Buntings and half a dozen Corn Bunts and the 1w Kumlien’s Gull were noted as were plenty of Hen Harriers, Shoveler and Coot. All the last three are hard to come by on Lewis with Corn Bunting extinct as a breeder for past 30 years.
