Snowy owl corpse

Friday 27th May: Whilst at Mangersta sands, near Uig, Lewis, I found the remains of a Snowy Owl on the beach. The head was missing but wings, tail and talons intact. No rings. Reported to RSPB Harris. Helen Mugridge

I don't think there have been any sightings of a Snowy Owl in the islands since 2013 but might be wrong. That year there was a returning ♂ on the Grenitote/Sollas machair in the spring and then on St Kilda on several dates until last reported in late November.
