The Balranald Nature Reserve is situated at North Uist which is a 20 minute drive away.
One publication is a must for visitors and that is the Outer Hebrides (Western Isles) Bird Report 2015 which is obtainable from Beaufort Press.
You should also invest in the OS Sheets covering the 3 Islands which can be used in conjunction with the Bird Report.
We can also offer a warm welcome to birders whether experienced or inexperienced.We can offer you a fairly easy lifetime tick with our own Song Thrush (Turdus Philomelos hebridensis) which is more common than its mainland cousin. Raptors such as Golden Eagles, White-tailed Sea Eagle, Buzzard, Kestrel, Peregrine, Hen Harrier and Merlin are not uncommon and our major hand is in the wader department.
