• 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.

    A Storm Petrel caught and released on South Uist on 2nd July had been ringed the previous year also in the July at Noss Head, Wick, a duration of 353 days and a distance of 292km. I think that we can safely assume it didn't travel overland.
