Members of the public are asked to help researchers gather information on the impact of plastics on birds.

A new website has been launched by researches from the University of the Highlands and Islands to gather information about the interaction between birds and debris such as plastics.

Members of the public are being asked to upload details and photos of birds which have become entangled in debris or which have incorporated it into their nests to www.birdsanddebris.com

14 people in Skye and Lochalsh are to be reported for speeding.

This follows three days of dedicated activity from road policing officers.

One person is to be reported for careless driving and several drivers being reported for documentation offences.

A father and son are set to undertake a 200-mile-long walk from Skye to Crieff to raise funds for two charities.  

51-year-old Ewen Cameron and his 8-year-old son, Fraser, will begin their walk in Glenbrittle on Sunday 4 August.
