About this book

This is the first publication dedicated exclusively to the birds of Skye. Although the importance of the island group for Golden Eagles, and more recently White-tailed Eagles, is well recognised, the fact that Skye supports a wide diversity of bird life has largely gone unnoticed. A total of 238 different species have been recorded, and 14 of these are red listed. The book analyses records from the last 125 years, and provides a systematic list, plus information on status and distribution.

There are additional chapters on habitats, conservation issues, and historical figures such as the Rev. Hugh Macpherson of Glendale, and Seton Gordon, who in different ways were influential in the development of ornithological knowledge of the island. A chapter is dedicated to areas of special interest to birdwatchers.
