Info please – Helicopter movements in Broad Bay

On Saturday 20th November 2010 at  about 4pm, a small, dark helicopter flew over Broad Bay and then returned and landed on Sgeir Leathann, the small, tidal island group in Broad Bay – AKA ‘An Duin’. Three people got out of the helicopter, stayed briefly on the island and then returned to the helicopter and it departed. The helicopter had yellow or gold lettering on its sides. Concerns have been raised as to the purposes of this landing, and the possibility that helicopter flights in the area could frighten the seal colony at an important time for breeding. There is no suggestion that this flight or landing was in anyway illegal, but we would like to know why this landing occured. All info received in full confidence.



  1. On a Saturday, when it’s already pretty dark? All very mysterious!
