Barra itself is a lovely island very picturesque:
The next morning we set off for RSPB Balranald where Redshanks on posts entertained us on the drive in and a Snipe showed as we parked up, a good start. It's about a 3 mile walk around the reserve starting off through farmland where again we heard Corncrake calling but not showing even though we hung around for a while! Elusive little ..........!
Some other more obliging birds:
Redshank on a post
So all in all a great time so far!
