With such a broad ranging diversity of habitats throughout Shetlands environment there are species and spectacles for all wildlife enthusiasts and experts; from vast open spaces of unspoilt blanket bog and heath with moorland breeding shorebirds to breathtaking ‘seabird cities’ crowded onto some of the most spectacular sea cliffs in the world.
Each season brings new life and something special; wintering birdlife from the north such as sea ducks, shorebirds and wildfowl; summer breeding birds as mentioned above and of course the islands are a hot spot for migrating birds in spring and autumn.
Shetland Nature as nature professionals have a major responsibility to wildlife and the environment. They take great pride in communicating and promoting a responsible approach through what they do. Similarly Shetland Nature feel it equally as important that they should support those who mange, protect and support the habitats, reserves and species which feature so prominently throughout the holidays and tours they run.
