CommentI like the way this Sooty Oystercatcher is delicately holding the snail shell and the contrast of the bright sea behind him compared to its vivid colouring creating a good contrast. we were watching terns across the water at Govenor Island Bicheno when we spotted 3 Sooty Oystercatchers feeding in the shallow waters in front of us with enough sun behind us to pick up the black feathering
