Today it's O for Oystercatcher. We are lucky in Kent to have them breeding as well as wintering. Despite their name they don't usually eat oysters but prefer smaller crabs and shellfish.

Heysham Port is not only a key Irish Sea hub. It is also home for an absolute ‘shed load’ of Oystercatchers. Filmed just 50m from Seatruck Ferries HQ. Industry and nature in perfect harmony.

Upcoming study by Senfeld et al. 2019 uses molecular data to analyse extinct Canary Island (Haematopus meadewaldoi). They conclude that it was a recently diverged morph or subspecies of the Eurasian oystercatcher. Pic: Henrik Gronvold, 1914 (public domain).
