The date of closure will be the 28th February. All discussion will now take place on the Curracag Facebook group at

If you are particularly interested in birds, in light of the Curracag decision, Outer Hebrides Birds has totally re-vamped their website and will now contain details of sightings, photographs, discussion and a number of resources for birds and birding in the Outer Hebrides. Please head to Outer Hebrides Birds where sign up/registration for users is open. As well as sign up using traditional methods OHB also have the facility for you to sign up/sign in using your Facebook or Twitter account.

Found an interesting spider. Anyone any ideas what it might be ?
I have had a reply from Mike Davidson and It is  Metellina merianae.
Not a new species for South Uist but it is new for this square.
