Thanks for letting me join the group. I visit the Outer Hebs regularly. Apart from other things i saw a Bat on 12 July flying at 12 noon at North Loch Eynort. Not a Pip but Long-eared size in level flight above tree top height. No photo.
Also Lime-speck Pug at Dark Island hotel, Benbecula. 100 Lesser Water plantain in ditch at Howmore, west side of road .

I was delighted to see this sea eagle up close this afternoon. Point, Isle of Lewis.Up above the sea eagles. I'm really pleased with this one, taken this afternoon, the best I've taken of eagles to date.
