After his sensational discovery of a pair of snowy owls nesting on the island of Fetlar in 1967, the Shetland representative of the RSPB became a national celebrity overnight.His name was Bobby Tulloch. The son of a crofter on the island of Yell, he became, through his own extraordinary talents and a certain amount of good luck, a renowned field ornithologist, tour guide, author and wildlife photographer. He was also an accomplished musician and songwriter, a skilled fisherman and a daring navigator of small boats among big rocks. He toured the UK giving illustrated talks for the RSPB and frequently appeared on TV and radio. When he died in 1996 at the age of 67 he was mourned by hundreds.In this book, his friends celebrate their many happy memories of his life. After a biographical sketch by Jonathan Wills the stories from other contributors tumble out - dramatic, insightful and funny. The book is illustrated throughout with evocative pictures and Bobby's wonderful wildlife and landscape photographs
