Sooty Oystercatcher

Sooty Oystercatcher
CommentThis was one of a pair of birds feeding actively on molluscs in the intertidal zone at low tide.
This bird happened to choose a limpet as I watched them and then revealed how they remove the flesh from the shell once they have prised the limpet off the rocks.
