Working from home has advantages. Today these came in the form of singing Chiffchaff in the village, two Red Knot and 3 Whimbrel at Loch Barvas with a Black throated diver staying out in the middle. 71 Lesser black backed Gulls were joined by an Arctic Skua – first of the year here. 73 Barnacles were stationed on Brue pool with a pair of Tufties and now 5 Shelduck there.
A sub-adult Iceland Gull was at Steinish with 5 first-summer Blk throated Divers off the Braigh and lots of Redpolls buzzing the plantation opposite Engies.
