• 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 range was deserted this afternoon but a brief call at Kilaulay produced 5 Lapland Buntings, a northern Song Thrush and 1 Redwing.

Better weather today and a stroll around the patch with a flock of circa 120 Twite on the machair and a Little Egret on Loch na Liana Moire at Frobost. 2 late Pied Wagtails were on the beach at Askernish

A Green-winged Teal, a Chiffchaff, two Lesser Redpolls and 15 Corn Buntings were seen in a walk around Loch Sandary, North Uist in the early afternoon.
