This will be a rather briefer than normal WBW this week - rather busy with life and such like.
Like most osystercatchers this is a bird I associate with sea-shores and waves, and salt air. We have two species of oystercatcher in Australia - The Pied and the Sooty. The sooty - Haematopus fuliginosus - is a lover of all things rocky and sharp. Its habitat is normally rocky shores and wave cut platforms. While I have seen them on sandy shores, it is always something to comment upon.
The two pictures here of this bird walking on sand are a but deceptive, as these were just small areas of beach on an otherwise rocky shore.
Now its over to you for WBW 103. Click on the link below and off you go.
