CommentSooty Oystercatcher 29-10-2017
The birds so familiar to rocky areas on the SE QLD coast, run down to the waters edge and pick at the limpits just as a wave comes over the rocks. In the water the limpets loosen their grip on the rock giving the oystercatcher chance to remove them. They seem to dance in and out of the waves and are entertaining to watch.
