The island of Skye is unique though the systematic recording of its wildlife is a recent development. By highlighting the wide variety of birds which can be seen, we hope to encourage locals and visitors to record their bird observations, stimulate involvement in fieldwork, and contribute to the conservation and protection of a number of rare and spectacular birds so that future generations can enjoy birding, against the most dramatic backdrop in Britain.
....and not just Skye
reports and images are regularly received from Lochalsh, from neighbouring west Lochaber, and parts of south-west Ross-shire which are included in the site. We are delighted that the website has become a popular resource for the wider area.
