Bobby Tulloch

His name was Bobby Tulloch, known to his  pals as 'Tucker'. The son of a crofter in 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 an a daring (some would say reckless) navigator. But perhaps his greatest skill was for friendship. When he died in 1996 at the age of 67, he was mourned by hundreds of friends throughout his native islands and far beyond.

In 2004 a website was setup to share  his collection of photographs.  
This rich collection was donated to the Old Haa Trust by his surviving family and reflects Bobby's passion for nature.
