New-look Nature in Shetland

Over the last few months we’ve been working on a fabulous new look for Nature in Shetland. The site will continue to grow with new content over the coming months, and we’d appreciate any feedback on the existing content, as well as suggestions for new pages/resources.

MAIN FEATURES


Record submission/download: sign up as a member of the site to submit your own records of birds, whales & dolphins, invertebrates or any other nature in Shetland. Your records will be added to our database but will also be visible to you and available to download at any time. The recording form has been designed to make the process of record submission as simple and quick as possible, and we would encourage users to use the form to submit records, rather than emailing them directly to us. We think this is an amazing addition

to our users experience.


Shetland Bird Club: the new look site is managed by Shetland Bird Club and also incorporates the club’s web pages. You can join the club, renew your membership, buy the Shetland Bird Report or apply for a grant with Calum's Fund.

Check out the Shetland Bird Club pages to find out more.


Rare Birds Archive: we’ve added a searchable archive of ALL rare birds in Shetland. Search by month, day, date range, species, rarity status and more! Why not give it a try!


Image gallery: the site has a searchable image gallery which will include a selection of your photos either uploaded to Nature in Shetland Facebook group, tweeted to us (@natureinshet) or submitted to the site with records. We’ll continue to add older images to the site from the Nature in Shetland archive. We think you will agree that the photos are stunning!


News: follow the Nature in Shetland news blog to stay up to date with news and events related to Shetland Bird Club and Nature in Shetland.


Latest sightings: The site includes all sightings from 2019 and we’ll continue to update the latest sightings from Shetland on a daily basis. Over the coming months we’ll add pages from the Nature in Shetland archive. We are delighted to continue to offer this service which was so popular in the past.


We would welcome your thoughts, and any feedback on the new Nature in Shetland website, so please get in touch with comments, questions or suggestions
