While I was sitting on the beach, this oystercatcher and chick came running along towards me. This species is Haematopus ostralegus and it looks very similar to the Pied Oystercatcher from Australia.
One day I may find out if much more the geography separates them.
Just next to the path - but protected by a rope fence was an Oystercatchers nest - complete with its camouflaged eggs,
Just as we waiting for the return boat this Meadow Pipit appeared - just in time for a few quick images and then we were off.
