Oystercatchers, Mangere

Oystercatchers, Mangere

It was a grey afternoon, but perfectly still, hardly a ripple on the surface of the water in the bay by Kiwi Esplanade. The oystercatchers had flown in, driven by the rising tide, from their feeding grounds in the mudflats of the Manukau Harbour. And now the tide was inching its way up the various outcrops of volcanic rock that they occupied.

(Except for one red bill and red legs, the picture was practically black and white out of the camera…)
