The Oystercatcher was a bird we saw almost everywhere in Scotland. Well, the area we visited. And heard. Because you heard them before you saw them. I did not know they were so talkative. Now I do. :)

  7. Lovely shots. The Oystercatchers call is something you'll probably here all around the coast in the UK. A nice bird to see.
