The Shetland Isles is one of my Steve Races favourite places in the UK for wildlife.

This talk highlights some of the key species of birds and mammals that breed on  and call Shetland their home. From Mountain Hares and Otters to Red-throated Divers the Shetland Isles are truly a magical place to visit.

We anticipate. that the workshop will finish at about 15.30.
