• 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.

Siberian Chiffchaff and at least 3 Common Chiffchaffs still by the football pitch at Castlebay. Another Common Chiffchaff was at Creachan. The Surf Scoter was still with the Long-tailed Duck flock off Allasdale and 2 Goldeneyes on Loch an Duin were my first this season.
