    A juvenile glaucous gull and a second winter Iceland gull were both new in at Ardveenish today. A single fieldfare was at Creachan.

    A male American Wigeon was at Ardheisker, North Uist in the early afternoon. Ardheisker is on the main road near the W end of the Committee Road. Although there was a bit of chestnut at certain angles behind eye, axillaries appeared white when it briefly flapped wings and there was a distinct black line around base of bill.

    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!
