When here in the Outer Hebrides and looking at a bird, have you ever wondered how rare it is? The status of all species can vary enormously from island to island. How rare is Shoveler on Barra, has Stock Dove been seen on Harris, does Dotterel occur on Benbecula in the autumn, and how common is Blue Tit on North Uist? Well, fret no longer! The Status and Distribution of birds here on the Outer Hebrides has been completely updated and summarised for every species and each of the main islands and outliers.

The Blue Pig Studio has been run by husband and wife team Jane and Peter Harlington since 2002 and is based in Carloway on the west side of the Isle of Lewis.
The Blue Pig is the focal point of many activities, art, crafts, workshops or simply to meet one another over a cup of tea. All visitors receive a warm welcome.
Jane's art and printmaking has a very distinctive style and she has had many exhibitions including at the Royal College of Art, Inverness Museum and Art Gallery and An Lanntair"
