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.

All submissions to this website will be passed to the County Bird Recorder - Your records are crucial for local conservation and to build the county’s ornithological history. Records are also very important as without them being submitted we would be unable to produce our county bird reports.
