  Birdwatching in the Auld Haa Garden

  Citril Finch - Mega tick #1! - Auld Haa Guest House

The Auld Haa may be one of the best homes in Britian for rare birds. Tommy is an amateur birdwatcher and nature enthusiast and is obvious living in the right place if you’re interested in birds and rarities. Working in his Garden on June 6th 2008 he was the first to see and identify this Citril Finch a 1st record for British Ornithology. Over the years the grounds around the “Auld Haa” can claim at least 2 or 3 more 1st and countless other rare species.  Tommy has planted over 50 small trees, dug ponds and altered his garden to attract birds, plus is the only islander feeding the birds year around. Mostly he sees House Sparrows, Starlings & Rock Doves, but it is all worth the effort when a "rare bird" comes along & they really seem to like the Auld Haa Guest House & Fair Isle.
