• 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.

The 2nd winter Little Gull was back at Eoligarry this morning, roosting on the rocks near the jetty before flying off north. This is our first sighting for a while so we assume it's the same bird that's been seen on South Uist lately. 23 Whooper Swans in 2 flocks flew north through the Sound of Barra in the half hour we were there. Our first Jackdaw of the year joined 2 of the wintering Rooks at Scurrival. 3 Long-tailed Tits were still at Northbay and the 2 Velvet Scoters remained east of Vatersay causeway.
