Please note: Following a decision by the Curracag Committee to streamline their online presence an announcement was made at the AGM on 8th February 2017 that this forum will be closing. The date of closure will be the 28th February. All discussion will now take place on the Curracag Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/curracag

If you are particularly interested in birds, in light of the Curracag decision, Outer Hebrides Birds has totally re-vamped their website and will now contain details of sightings, photographs, discussion and a number of resources for birds and birding in the Outer Hebrides. Please head to Outer Hebrides Birds where sign up/registration for users is open. As well as sign up using traditional methods OHB also have the facility for you to sign up/sign in using your Facebook or Twitter account.

Great Skua

Post by BrianR » 17 Jun 2015, 22:11

Christine took the attached photo of a particularly aggressive Great Skua that followed their small boat when fishing near Keose, Lochs recently. Must have seen the fish in the basket and kept swooping down just missing her head by inches. After at least ten dives gave up and flew off. Shows an unusual number of white feathers in plumage.
