    2 Greenland white-fronts were new in at Cleat this morning. A pink-footed goose with greylags was also new at Allasdale. 2 snow buntings were on the beach at Eoligarry and another was still feeding in the middle of the road at Caolis, Vatersay (presumably the same bird I saw here a few weeks ago). The brent goose flock at Traigh Mhor is diminishing in numbers; today I could only find 25 birds.

  • 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!
