Visiting Skye in 2 days - help please!

Hi Everyone

Visiting Skye in a few days so would value a quick reply.

Can a local tell me the best places to listen for Corncrake?
Also, are Great Skua present on Skye? would appreciate location tips also

Is there someone who is willing to be contacted by email when I am there for the most up to date info?

many thanks

Hi Annikins

It's time we had an Opus article for this island!

Here's a link to the excellent Skye Birds website. You should get most of what you need from there, until someone more local comes in.
