Black, White and Red --- and Blue Sky

When the oystercatchers have had their rest in their allotted space (and the tide is on its way out), there is only one way to go and that is West to the mudflats of the Manukau Harbour. Seen at our visit to Ambury Farm Park.

South Island Pied Oystercatcher (Haematopus finschi)

  2. Wow! Love the soaring wings against the bright blue of the sky! The birds seem so relaxed in their flight! Gorgeous!

  3. We only see Oyster-catchers once in a while here, and it’s always a treat. Lovely photo!

  5. I love the formation of oystercatchers, but I really love the white faced heron further down the page! That one is awesome!
