Oystercatcher ...... old carrot beak

On the coast.

I  don't recall ever having seen an Oystercacher swimming ........ They are normally seen standing and rooting around the shore line for food, it was therefore quite a surprise to photograph this chap swimming around about twenty feet off shore in very calm water earlier in the year. 

They really are characters and very entertaining birds that never fail to put on a show.
