About

Take the road running east - west and use the passing places carefully to scan from. Birds are often found hunting the rough grassland and moors either side of the road. The best time to look is in the morning and early evening from May - August.

Regular in summer on Uists, taking advantage of vole population. Rare elsewhere.
