A family of Oyster Catchers

 

Admit I had to consult the bird book to identify these beautiful birds but their distinctive long red beaks and black and white markings mean a family of Oyster Catchers have joined us to enjoy their holidays at Bog Mill.

Walk too close and a very protective parent calls to his family until the danger has passed, so photos are a bit distant but what lovely birds, I hope they stay around for a while.
