Latest sightings

Friday 2nd July
Fantastic views of an otter again. One was spotted on the shore of the West Ham, just as it was entering the water. After playing in the water for just a wee while, it vanished. A few minutes later, it reappeared bounding back up the beach and then it lolloped across the grassy plain lying between the West and East Hams, then turned north and headed up the hill behind the bothy.

Pair of ravens were lingering around the island today, seen in the West Ham in the morning, and then later, chilling out at the top of the broch.

Thursday 1st July
Great Northern Diver in full breeding plumage in the West Ham.
