Oystercatcher 05 -- a little history....

Dec 26th from Derek
........also a ringed Oystercatcher (05?)  feeding on its own, wading out to swimming depth, feeling for water snails with it's feet picking them up & wading back too knee depth before prising them out of the shell, roughly one a minute so some 15 molluscs were gorged while I was trying to read the ring.

Mike replies...
Oystercatcher – 05 was ringed at the Gann on the 16/10/15 and re-sighted on 11/08/16 also at the Gann.
