being the confessions of a recovering hillwalker
Hmmmnn. Shapes right, but no sign of the red legs and bill. Could be an immature, perhaps ? There were certainly oyster catchers about.
Can't see the white collar clearly but maybe a sandpiper?
Cheers, Ken. Crap fotie, but I think Alan "Oddie" Sloman is correct.BTW, when do you start doing your old job as a "consultant" at five times the money ?
5 times the money...hmm...I think those days are gone. Anyway they'll be paying me to stay away from now on!
The beak is the clue - is this perhaps one of the best images of a possible oystercatcher that has ever been taken with a Nokia 1100?
Is it a beak or a bill, Martin ? Never been quite sure of the difference.Anyway, oyster catcher it is. And I am unanimous in that.Dunno what a Nokia 1100 is, but I did drive a Vanden Plas 1100 for a while, before the rear sub-frame collapsed.
A 'bill' is what you get from the Inland Revenue at this time of year!!I used to drive my dad's Morris 1100. I crashed it before the sub-frame had a chance to collapse. It's possibly analogous to the Nokia 1100....
