Shelder Geö

Traditional Shetland reel from Tom Anderson’s ‘Ringing Strings’ collection (p.85). He notes that Shelder Geö is a place in the North of Shetland where the Shelders (Oystercatchers) nest.

The oystercatcher is more commonly called a ‘shalder’ in Shetland - from the Norse ‘tjaldr’ or ‘tjaldur’.
