UIST NEWS MONDAY 13th AUGUST

 

A bright start to the day here in Uist, it is forecast to be beautiful all day today with temperatures of up to 13°C. It is to be cloudy tomorrow though with rain forecast for later on in the evening. A Great Northern Diver, Gannets, Fulmers, Sooty Shearwaters, Storm Petrels, Black Guillemots, Puffins, a Great Shua, an Arctic Skua and Kittiwakes were spotted off South Uist yesterday. The Sooty Shearwater is a seabird which is smaller than a Herring Gull. It is identifiable by its dark plumage, which is responsible for its name. In poor viewing conditions, it looks all black, but in good light, it shows as dark chocolate brown with a silvery strip along the centre of the underwing. They feed on fish and squid and can dive up to 68m deep for food. Infrequently heard in flight, the Sooty Shearwater is a noisy bird when ashore, its most common calls are a der-rer-ah or coo-roo-ah. The name "Shearwater" comes from the birds flight style of shearing across the fronts of waves with their wings held stiff. They can also live for many years, the oldest Shearwater recorded was at least 55 years old.

 

Next posting will be Tuesday 14th August 2018, order by 10.30am for sameday dispatch.


 

 

 


 


WELCOME TO THE 

HEBRIDEAN SMOKEHOUSE WEBSITE


THE HOME OF THE BEST

SCOTTISH SMOKED SALMON

AND SHELLFISH.

Prue Leith, "the best in the world".

 

 

 

Hebridean Smokehouse is located on the Isle of North Uist - part of the Outer Hebridean archipelago west of the Scottish mainland. The pristine clean waters that surround our shores support all the salmon and sea trout we use to make our special peat and beechwood smoked products and the small local inshore fishing fleet land the very best scallops for us to smoke with locally-cut peat.

 

We have been smoking locally reared and landed fish and shellfish here on North Uist for nearly 30 years. It is the combination of excellent fish and the skills of our expert team that has earned Hebridean Smokehouse a reputation for producing the very best smoked salmon.
