I thought I would run a little quiz to find out how much people know about the breeding birds in Shetland. For this you need to list the birds in order of how many years they have bred between 1965 - 2010( most numerous at number 1 and down to the species with least number of years.)

In addition one species has not bred at all in Shetland can you guess which ?

In no particular order
Blue tit, Chaffinch, Chiff Chaff, Coot, Glaucous gull, Greenfinch, Marsh Warbler, Reed warbler, Robin, Sedge warbler, Snowy Owl, Treesparrow, Whooper swan

either use comments box at bottom of this post or e-mail me at

list as

2. greenblogger    9 years

I will post the results in a few days so keep checking, its just a fun quiz so no names will be used !!
