Why join Shetland Bird Club?


Membership of Shetland Bird Club is open to absolutely anyone with an interest in Shetland and its bird life. Both beginners and experts are equally welcomed, and everyone has an opportunity to contribute to our knowledge of Shetland's birds. 

Members receive the annual Shetland Bird Report, giving details of all species seen in the county, an SBC window sticker, regular newsletters full of news, research and features, and free entry to our illustrated talks and lectures on birds and other wildlife.

SBC members receive a 10% discount at Harbro, Lerwick, on bird seed and other related products. We hope that this will be the first of several new benefits for our members.
