• 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.

News just in about a third ringed Storm Petrel that was caught and released on South Uist on 11th July is that it was ringed just nine days previously on Lunga, Treshnish Isles, a distance of 107km. Thats now one from the north, one from the west and now this from the south.
