• 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.

Whilst checking my moth trap early this morning there was a quietly singing Acrocephalus warbler in the garden, however it stuck well into cover, it was either a reed or Blyth's reed but haven't seen or heard it sine c6:30am.

Also the turtle dove again early morning (had obviously come into roost), wood pigeon and spotted flycatcher in my garden today.

cheers, Andrew
