Matt Eade works for Naturetrek and manages tours to Shetland for that company, so he was keen to convince us that it is a splendid place to go birding. And I can vouch for the fact that he is dead right, having been a number of times and intending to go again. Shetland is the most Northerly archipelago in the British Isles – by some distance, and is at a similar latitude to Oslo, so it has a different range of common birds from ours down here in Norfolk. You won’t find Robins and Blue Tits all over the place, but you might easily encounter Eider ducks, Black Guillemots or Red-throated Divers.
