Limpet Lunch

While strolling along the West Bay Walkway yesterday I was pleased to see this Black Oystercatcher (Haemotopus bachmani), the first I have seen this year. I had begun to think that they had forsaken this stretch of shoreline due to some environmental problem but I'm guessing now that it has just been chance that we haven't met for some time. This one and a partner were busily cleaning limpets off the rocks during this low tide.
