About this book

Eigg is a Scottish island with a rich, diverse mosaic of habitats supporting a wide variety of wildlife. The island's bird life reflects this diversity with around 70 species breeding each year and many more occurring as passage or winter visitors. This book provides a summary of all bird species known to have occurred on the Island up until March 2012. This publication is important, as not only is it the most comprehensive account ever written of Eigg’s birdlife, both past and present, but it is also a testament to the dedicated work of John Chester and the efforts of islanders who help to nurture the natural richness of this beautiful island.
