Dogs armed with global positioning systems (GPS) equipment are being used to help monitor rare birds in Scotland.

Wildlife Ranger Ally Macaskill uses two German shorthaired pointers to track bird breeds such as Black Grouse, Hen Harriers and Ptarmigan at Perthshire’s Schiehallion estate.

The dogs wear a GPS enabled collar, which transmits their location to a handset carried by Mr Macaskill on the estate.

The project is coordinated by the John Muir Trust.
