American Wigeon at Laxdale

Call it what you will – Tong Sands, Steinish Estuary, Laxdale Estuary, off Cross Street, the Hospital saltings – it is the estuary on the north edge of Stornoway and always worth a look. It is the main winterng site for Eurasian Wigeon on the island and as from Saturday an American Wigeon has dropped in. It tends to hang around near the roosting gulls.
