Shetland June 2012 — Mike's birding trip

In june 2012 Carol, John and I went on Mike's Shetland trip. There were 12 of us in total and Mike had hired a mini bus which we drove round in. We stayed at the annex to Sumburgh hotel. Shetland was a wonderful place with lots of birds to see. The puffins were so close you could almost touch them. Our late evening visit to Mousa to watch the return of hundreds of small storm petrel birds after a day feeding out at sea was an amazing experience, and the noice....

The total for the group was 62 bird species, two otters, and maybe a polecat.
