UIST NEWS TUESDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

It is very wet and windy here in Uist today. It is forecast to be windy for the rest of the day with South Westerly winds gusting up to 56mph later on this afternoon. It also looks very wet and windy tomorrow morning but it should hopefully start to settle down in the afternoon. Pectoral Sandpipers, Black-tailed Godwits and a little Stint were seen on North Uist yesterday morning. The Pectoral Sandpiper is a bit larger than a Dunlin. It has a brown, streaky breast, white belly and slightly downcurved bill and yellow-brown legs. The brown breastband (which gives the species its name) and white belly are its most distinctive features. The breeding male Pectoral Sandpiper has an inflatable throat sac, which expands and contracts rhythmically during display flights. The accompanying vocalization consists of a series of hollow hoots, and is one of the most unusual sounds heard in summer on the Arctic tundra.

 

Next posting will be Wednesday 26th September 2018, order by 10.30am for sameday dispatch.

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.
