NOTE that ALL bird records go into the database used in the compilation of the Shetland Bird Report produced by Shetland Bird Club, EVEN IF they do not appear on this page. Recording forms are available here.  Information on all species is made available to Shetland Biological Records Centre. Photographs are copyright of the named photographer and may not be used for any other purpose without their permission.  Species in red are BBRC rarities. Species in orange are local/Scottish rarities.

Please remember to follow the Shetland Bird Club Code of Conduct when birding in Shetland.

Please note: this is a news site. We try and include most records sent directly to us (but sometimes forget) and we collect records from many other sources. As a news site, there will inevitably be errors included - in identification, in attribution, and in compilation. This site does not constitute an official record; this is published annually in the Shetland Bird Report (SBR), using records which have been formally submitted and assessed by local and national committees.

There are far more photos of Nature in Shetland around than we can ever post on the Facebook page or on the website, so we have set up a Nature in Shetland Photos Facebook Group where you can post many more photos. Please feel free to join, post photos and add more members.
