• 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.

Not surprisingly there were plenty of flooded areas in the Rubh' Arnal area, North Uist this morning. Sightings included the return of the wintering pale-bellied Brent Goose flock (a count of 42), 11 Whooper Swans (including a family of six), two White-tailed Eagles and five Snow Buntings.
