This sleek, elegant bird with a silvery body, slender wings and elongated tail streamers can be found in the islands from late April - October. Birds can be found breeding on the small islands visible from the Griminish road between May - August. They can also be found fishing in nearby Poll na Crann. Take the turning opposite Caley Timber and use the passing places carefully to scan Loch Mor to the north.
