Birds of the Outer Hebrides / Western Isles – Their Status and Distribution on the Main Islands and Outliers

Welcome to this online resource

This online publication is a guide to the Status and Distribution of Birds on the Outer Hebrides / Western Isles and summarised for every species and each of the main islands and outliers. More details can be found in the Introduction of the main menu (top right).

By its very nature, this will always be a work-in-progress. As time passes and the status of birds change, there will be regular updates and improvements to ensure that it is current and accurate.
