Bobby the Bird­man

SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - Books - Edited by Jonathan Wills and Mike McDon­nell

Bobby Tul­loch, known as “Tucker” to his friends, was a cel­e­brated or­nithol­o­gist, tour guide, au­thor and wildlife photographer whose sen­sa­tional dis­cov­ery of a pair of snowy owls nest­ing on the is­land of Feltar in 1967 made him a na­tional celebrity overnight – snowy owls had not been seen breed­ing in Bri­tain for decades. This col­lec­tion of mem­o­ries and pho­tos from friends of Tul­loch gives an in­sight into the man he was as well as a delve into life on the is­land of Shet­land, and is pref­aced by Bill Od­die.
