I have not been to the Hebrides for almost ten years having travelled there extensively in the past. Needing images of hen harriers for my new bird of prey talk was my excuse to take a short trip to Skye and then on to the Uists. Only two days though meant that I was under pressure to cram in as much as possible and I was pleased to add lots of images to the portfolio. Including some okish images of my main target species.
These black throated divers were a nice surprise on Loch Druidibeg.

Short eared owls are thriving on the hebrides and can be found hunting in any suitable moorland or grassland habitat.
