These Sooty Oystercatchers (Haematopus fuliginosus) landed on the beach at Walkerville, wandered about for a brief while and then took off again. They were never in great light - but I kind of like what I was able to do with them in the breaking waves.
Anyway, I normally see this species in more rocky coastlines, so maybe that's where they were going when they left.
Oystercatchers of any kind are some of my favourite birds, I could watch them for ages.
The pictures look much better if you click on them!
