    Shetland April '16

    Hi there, I'm heading to Shetland (south mainland) next week for a few days (Tues 26 - Thurs 28th), for a spot of birding for my birthday. I'm travelling alone and just wondered if anyone was around / also travelling up then and fancied meeting to share a bit of birding time :) Cheers, Nick.
