BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Redonda Island -

Join wildlife pho­tog­ra­phers David Ti­pling and Bry­don Thoma­son in the en­chant­ing Shet­land Is­lands on this ex­clu­sive BBC Wildlife reader hol­i­day. Or­gan­ised by Shet­land Na­ture, the spe­cially de­signed itin­er­ary is aimed at peo­ple with a pas­sion for wildlife who want to get more out of their na­ture photograph­y. Learn about the fas­ci­nat­ing cul­tural her­itage of the Shet­land Is­lands, en­joy the ar­chi­pel­ago’s un­spoiled beauty and en­counter an ar­ray of ex­cit­ing species, in­clud­ing puffins, red-necked phalaropes, frog or­chids and or­cas (this is one of the best places in the UK to see them). With the sup­port of two ex­pe­ri­enced lead­ers and the Shet­land Na­ture team, you will have hands-on photograph­y tu­ition through­out your stay. Most of the ex­cur­sions will be in small groups, apart from ro­ta­tions when us­ing pur­pose-built hides to see north­ern breed­ing birds and dur­ing a day of ot­ter track­ing. Ot­ters are very much a spe­cial­ity of Shet­land Na­ture tours and the op­por­tu­nity to pho­to­graph them is one of the high­lights of this ac­tion-packed week.

Spe­cial tar­get birds in your un­par­al­leled itin­er­ary in­clude Arc­tic and great skuas, black-guille­mots, curlews, golden and ringed plovers, and north­ern gan­nets – you will travel on a char­tered boat to cap­ture their feed­ing frenzy. It is im­por­tant to us that we take time with each species and lo­ca­tion so you can ap­pre­ci­ate the ex­pe­ri­ence – you are on hol­i­day after all.

With a bit of luck, you may get to see and pho­to­graph or­cas dur­ing this hol­i­day.

Track ot­ters with ex­pe­ri­enced guides.
