Oyster Catcher Nest

Recommended Posts

I was amazed today to see just how much effort an oyster catcher will go to when building a nest - this one certainly isn’t going anywhere 😀

And another, 2 weeks ago, mid river pontoon, a block of polystyrene mid shot has an Oyster catcher on 3 eggs. Can young waders swim as there is no land bridge.

Yes they can swim, they are Precocial when they hatch, that is they are mobile and relatively mature.
