If you missed it on the telly can I recommend you watch Islands on the Edge. It is a fantastic BBC wildlife programme, which is all shot in the Hebrides. It took three years for top wildlife documentary makers to capture all the seasons and animal behaviour. It is on BBC 2 on Monday at 9.00pm.
You can catch the iPlayer version or review key clips on the special BBC website. It contains galleries and background on the wildlife in the Hebrides. There is a fantastic gliding shot of a soaring white-tailed eagle and the best I have seen of following otters through their life cycle. Most of all for me is the spectacular and wild scenery.
What makes it more special for us is that we are heading to the Hebrides in two weeks time.
It is a wonderful reminder that we have one of the special places on the planet right on our doorstep.
We will be posting more on our trip to the Western Isles shortly. We aim to produce the second volume of our eBook series on the Isle of Harris when we return so watch this space.
