  • Oystercatcher
    The Eurasian Oystercatcher, otherwise known as a Pied Oystercatcher or just Oystercatcher here in the UK is part of the oystercatcher family. Its the only one to occur here in the UK, although there are 3 subspecies of this oystercatcher in Europe and some of Asia. Its highly migratory but we are lucky enough to have this bird stay here year round. This bird as an adult has black above, white underneath, and a vividly red legs and bill which makes this striking bird really stand out amongst other waders. Despite its name, it does not primarily hunt for oysters, however its one of, if not the only wader to be able to pry open these tough creatures. What makes this bird really unique is that the shape of the bill varies depending on which type of food it specializes in. Birds that focus on molluscs have broad bill tips, where birds that specialize with unearthing worms tend to have pointed bills.

  • Goldcrest
    The Goldcrest has the pride of place as Europes smallest bird, weighing as little as 5 grams. This member of the kinglet family is very similar to the Firecrest, but with its plainer face makes it pretty easy to distinguish between the two. </br></br> This bird is partially migratory, but this bird does stay year-round here in the UK. You can typically find this bird with flocks of tits in the winter months.

  • Spotted Redshank
    The spotted redshank is a medium sized elegant wading bird, slightly larger than a redshank. In summer plumage the adults are almost entirely black, save for some white `spotting' on the wings, a white `wedge' on the back showing clearly in flight, and a barred tail. In winter they have a grey back, and paler under parts, with a more prominent eye stripe than a redshank and lacking a redshank's white wing bars. They migrate from northern European across and northern Siberian breeding areas, to winter in Europe, Africa, China and South-east Asia. They are a relatively scarce wintering species in the UK, with over half the population found at fewer than ten sites, making them an Amber List species.
