Oystercatcher .......... not many oysters here though.

These birds always bring a smile to my face in the same way that Puffins do, there is something about them that on the one hand is ungainly but on the other cries out character.

Either way always a joy to see at an inland site.

  1. Definately have bags full of character and their call is easily recognisable. In a hide at the weekend were discussing it's alternative name "carrot nose" and whether people genuinely thought it had a carrot. But also why some oc's have pointy bill tip and others a blunt/rounded tip.
