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.

Wasp, hover and sawfly

Feel free to show off your photographs here - upload wildlife or landscape images - the only requirement is that they have been taken within the Outer Hebrides.

Please remember to keep image file sizes as small as possible - many users here in the Outer Hebrides have a slow/unreliable broadband connection or are still on dial-up. See the User Information for details on how to produce a good-looking low resolution image suitable for use on the internet. Alternatively images can be hosted on Photobucket or Flickr. Thanks!

Wasp, hover and sawfly

Post by MisterT » 08 Jun 2012, 20:08

The recent warm, calm weather encouraged insects to be more active and gave us the chance to do some sweep netting. The wasp was caught by Bill, the hoverflies and sawfly by YvonneB.
