POLICE have reminded people watching wildlife in Shetland to follow coronavirus guidelines on gatherings.
It follows the sighting of a rare bird in Yell on Tuesday.
The local police force said on Twitter: “Shetland has been gifted the opportunity to see another rare bird species.
“When observing any of our amazing wildlife please follow the recent Scottish Covid-19 restrictions on outdoor gatherings.
“No gathering should be more than six persons from no more than two households.”
