Wildlife of Shetland’s Simmer Din – David Hollis

Fabulous wildlife and landscapes.

David says:-

“This beautiful and informative presentation takes the audience on a tour around the islands of the Shetland group in the far north of Scotland.  Indeed the Shetland Islands are closer to Norway than Scotland and this is reflected in the wildlife and culture of these beautiful islands.

Home to Gannets, Divers and the infamous Bonxie, Shetland drips with fabulous wildlife just waiting to be discovered.  The landscape is stunning, bleak and wonderful, but alive with birdsong and swaying beds of cotton grass, it has a stark beauty all its own.

Come with me to revel in this fabulous place where the sun never sets all summer long.”
