    After seeing the Semipalmated Sandpiper at Balgarva this morning, I visited The Range where there were 7 Ruff and 21 Black-tailed Godwits at Kilaulay and 60+ Wigeon on Loch Bee , the most I have seen this autumn. Here at Askernish, the Lesser Redpolls now number circa 50 and there are 30+ Goldfinch.

  • About Us

    Outer Hebrides Birds is a small group of enthusiastic birders here in the islands. We enjoy birding on our local patch as much as we do looking for that elusive rarity. Many of us participate in the regular and one-off local BTO surveys.


    Our aim is to enhance the recording of birds in the county and bring together people with a shared interest in birds and birding here in the Outer Hebrides.


    Please feel free to sign up to our website and post your own sightings and photos. You can also ask questions and join in the discussions.


    Alternatively you may email your sightings and photos to us sightings@outerhebridesbirds.org.uk or telephone us on 01851 741250 and leave a voicemail. All submissions will be passed to the County Bird Recorder. Thank you!
