Waders Galore

The Redshank stands out on the stone; the Lapwing is camouflaged in the machir. North and South Uist are apparently the places to see British farmland waders with some 9000 pairs taking advantage of the islands' lack of predators. The Stornoway Gazette carries a report on these birds by RSPB Scotland.

Scottish Islands Explorer - would welcome a comparable number of new readers
