    Pretty quiet day, after a trawl up the west side of South Uist and as far north as Stinky Bay in Benbecula. The only bird of note was the Iceland Gull that remains at Kildonan. There were quite a number of other gulls there too (Great Black-backed, Herring, Common and Black-headed) and a Great Skua flew over.

    Aird an Runair, North Uist: in a brisk W wind a trickle of Manx Shearwaters and Gannets were passing SW this morning and a couple of Great Skuas flew N. There were still one or two recently fledged Arctic Terns around the rocks while Dunlin numbers had risen to almost 400.

  • About Us

    Outer Hebrides Birds is a small group of enthusiastic birders here in the islands. We enjoy birding on our local patch as much as we do looking for that elusive rarity. Many of us participate in the regular and one-off local BTO surveys.

    Our aim is to enhance the recording of birds in the county and bring together people with a shared interest in birds and birding here in the Outer Hebrides.

    Please feel free to sign up to our website and post your own sightings and photos. You can also ask questions and join in the discussions.

    Alternatively you may email your sightings and photos to us sightings@outerhebridesbirds.org.uk or telephone us on 01851 741250 and leave a voicemail. All submissions will be passed to the County Bird Recorder. Thank you!
