  • Oystercatcher
    The Eurasian Oystercatcher, otherwise known as a Pied Oystercatcher or just Oystercatcher here in the UK is part of the oystercatcher family.  Itís the only one to occur here in the UK, although there are 3 subspecies of this oystercatcher in Europe and some of Asia.   Itís highly migratory but weíre lucky enough to have this bird stay here year round.<br/><br/> This bird as an adult has black above, white underneath, and a vividly red legs and bill Ė which makes this striking bird really stand out amongst other waders.  Despite its name, it does not primarily hunt for oysters, however itís one of, if not the only wader to be able to pry open these tough creatures. <br/><br/> What makes this bird really unique is that the shape of the bill varies depending on which type of food it specializes in.  Birds that focus on molluscs have broad bill tips, where birds that specialize with unearthing worms tend to have pointed bills.

    Stonechats are european robin sized birds. Males have striking black heads with white around the side of their neck, orange-red breasts and a mottled brown back. Females lack the males black head, but have brown backs and an orange tinge to their chests. Birds are frequently seen flicking their wings while perched, often doing so on the tops of low bushes. As its name suggests, birds utter a sharp loud call that sound like two stones being tapped together. <br/>They breed in western and southern parts of the UK, but disperse more widely in winter. Although the species is not faring too badly in the UK, it is doing less well on the continent and is of European conservation concern, making it an Amber List species. -rspb

  • Blue winged Teal
    The Blue winged Teal is a small dabbling duck, where its placement is no means a certainty. The coloring is remarkably similar to the Australasian Shoveler, but genetic testing shows that its nearly identical to that of the Cinnamon Teal. Occasional visitors come to the British Isles, distinct from the local Eurasian Teals and Garganey by their yellow legs and distinct white facial marking.
