• 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.

6 Woodpigeons on the wires at Brevig at first light when no doubt newly arrived migrants. Although a few pairs usually breed around Northbay and Ardmhor, they rarely stray far. A juvenile Crossbill was at Creachan briefly before flying south, my first Garden Warbler of the year was singing at Glen and a Swift was at Earsary. Shelducks have bred at their usual site at Caolas, Vatersay; a brood of 9 present today.
