Cliff Nesting Oyks

From Steve Jarvis - I just read the surprising post on high level Oyster Catchers at Stack Rocks. On the same day near Penberi I witnessed 2 aggressive Ravens on the cliffs being dive bombed by high speed Oyster Catchers. Later Fulmar and Chough joined in and a Greater Black Backed arrived. This was on a fairly vertical cliff face. The dumpy Oyster Catchers in vertical free fall was quite a sight, and they were also presumably cliff face nesting.
