The Birds of Eigg




Eigg is an 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 book is also a tribute to John ‘the bird’ Chester from some of those who have had the privilege to know him over his 26 years as the Isle of Eigg ranger, and who painstakingly collected many of these records.
