Oystercatchers

Last Tuesday afternoon near full tide. A good sized flock of oystercatchers were roosting on the sandbank by Titirangi Beach. Suddenly, on no apparent signal, they lifted off, flying out into Paturoa Bay, turning a few circles, and settling down again. Beautiful.

As the tide came further in, their patch of sand got smaller and smaller, and the march to the shore began.

    Great shots – interesting to see at least two species of oystercathers in the shots.
