• 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.

4 Spotted Flycatchers around the island today. A Siskin was at Castlebay and 5 more flew north over Brevig. Common Sandpipers have been hatching in the past few days, so it was nice to see a couple of families crossing the road on Vatersay today.
