There was at least two, maybe three, families of Oystercatcher with young of different age. One seemed newly hatched and another almost ad. This was on my morning walk before we left for the day.

  5. I found a nest of our Oystercatchers with two eggs right in the middle of a beach with many human visitors. With some help we got barricades placed around it but I never learned its fate.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. Recently I have encountered a few blogs that only allow GOOGLE+ responses. If that is the case with your blog I will only respond to you here on my blog. I don´t use GOOGLE+.
