Pied Flycatcher - Tony Marr
News from Tony for yesterday at Ness: 'at the Butt of Lewis the Little Stint was still on the pool west of the lighthouse, there was a Swift in the area and a Pied Flycatcher was inside the lighthouse compound. On the machair between Europie and Lionel the Golden Plover flock had increased to 200, there was a flock of 16 juvenile Ruff together with 11 Black-tailed Godwits. The Pied Flycatcher was still present at Port of Ness where there also was a migrant Willow Warbler.'

On North Uist at Baleshare Black-tailed Godwits had increased to 52 and there were 14 Ruff accompanying them. It was fairly quiet during a mornings seawatch at Griminish Point - species heading south included seven Common Scoter, a Sooty Shearwater, a trickle of waders and a small number of skuas including an adult Pomarine.
