About this book

A stunning and informative guide to the birds people can expect to see in Shetland. Paul Harvey is a resident expert on Shetland birds, and Rebecca's Nason's photography is second to none.

Shetland is well placed to provide a summer home for countless seabirds and waders, and also offers a well needed resting spot for tired and disorientated migrants. Many birds that are considered to be rare in many parts of the country are relatively common here, while many common garden birds are very rare.

Discover Shetland's Birds is a superb identification guide to resident and migrant birds, and offers insight into their lifestyle, with some interesting anecdotes. Scarce and rare visiting birds are also given reference in this wonderful guide, as well as where to try and spot birds in Shetland.
