Oystercatcher with Chicks
Oystercatcher with Chicks

One of the resident Oystercatchers at the site I work at. 3 pairs have successfully nested on site this year, the stone and shingle laydown areas provided perfect cover for the chicks. This was the first sighting of the chicks since hatching, you can see how well they blend into the ground on which they explore.
