• Please be aware that avian influenza has been confirmed in the Western Isles. Great Skua and Gannet are the worst affected currently but a range of other bird species can be infected. Please avoid contact with dead birds, give sick and dying birds space, keep dogs on leads and report all instances of five or more dead birds of one species to Defra (03459 335577).

  • 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.

We've developed an app that allows you to sign up and log in using your Facebook or Twitter account - this makes it very quick and easy for you.

We would advise though to pop into your profile and set a password in there too - this means that if there are any future problems with the Facebook/Twitter app (for instance they change their settings) you may not be able to log in that way. However, if you have a password set you will be able to log in in the traditional manner by entering your username and password.

Note: Even when signing up with Facebook or Twitter your account still needs to be authorised by an Admin so there may still be a slight delay in your account being activated (depending on whether the Admins are out birding or not...).
