Being a wet and windy morning we didn't venture out but with a few dry spells this afternoon we took a drive round the island that produced a brute of an adult Glaucous Gull flying in off the sea at Burrafirth where it briefly joined a few Gulls gathered on the beach before flying towards Loch of Cliff. A few Fieldfares were present along the road to Westing. A small flock of Gulls was in the fields north of Easter Loch which included an Iceland Gull which was joined by a second individual as I attempted a few long range shots in the atrocious weather .

Arriving in off the sea hot on the heels of a first-winter Great Black-backed Gull, it didn't linger long on the beach, before flying off alone inland
