These South Island pied oystercatchers were roosting on grass because of a higher than usual spring tide. The lighter coloured bird in the foreground is a juvenile.
The juvenile red-billed gulls were picking around for their own food but as soon as a parent turned up they went back to begging. They are from the same colony as the baby in the post from 17 November.
My intention with this page is to highlight one photo from each outing and tell its story in a couple of sentences. The subjects will vary - it will be whatever caught my eye or was most special on that day.
