About me

Introduction Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a keen birder, based in the little town of Burravoe, in South Yell, Shetland. This is at the very North of Scotland, where it is very beautiful, but it rains a lot and it's very windy too. I moved to Shetland because of the great birding that it offered, and have not regretted a single day of it! I can thoroughly recommend it for the way of life, and the way it can boost your 'life list' too. Shetland has many unexplored areas bird wise, and my corner of it is one of the least explored, so normally I get to have it all to myself! My passions are photographing and sound recording birds, and have an unhealthy obsession for rare sub-species too... Just check out my pages on sonograms or Rock Pipits etc. If you would like any copies of my photos or sounds, then feel free to email me.
