Hi Kristy. I think the bird you have is a Oystercatcher but i am not to sure. i can see one has a red bill, and black wings with a white wingbar. good capture against the light. well done TFS.

Ha Kristy,

Je hebt een vlucht scholeksters op de foto gezet. Indrukwekkend gezicht zoveel van die "bontepieten"- zo worden ze ook wel genoemd - bij elkaar. Mooi plaatje!


Hi Kristy,
I don't know their ID but I think that this is an excellent picture with nice tones of colors, great details and exposure. They might look like some kind of sterns or something. Thanks,

Hello risty,

these are Haematopus ostralegus.
