• The body of a Northern Gannet (Sula Bassana) lies in the sand at St Ninian's beach. The cause of death is unknown. Birds are known to starve with stomachs full of indigestible man-made plastics.  The material travels across oceans from North America and Europe ending up in the food chain or on beaches.  A fifth of the Shetlanders turn up for the annual ’ReddUp’ -the largest litter pick in Europe.
