North Roe Primary School

Rare Bird Alert!


This week there was a Rufous Turtle Dove in our playground! It was only the 3rd Shetland record, less than 20 have occurred in the UK! Scott’s Grandad first spotted the rare bird on Monday and on Tuesday some bird watchers came up to North Roe to see the Rufous Turtle Dove. The bird has probably come all the way from Russia! Thanks to Hugh for this lovely picture.




  1. What a great post! Many, many thanks to the staff and pupils at the school. It was lovely to meet you all and talk about such a wonderful bird that has made such a long journey! Well done to Scott’s Grandad Malcolm for discovering the bird and for his hospitality.
