Heron amid the oystercatchers

Oystercatchers, who eat mussels because there are no oysters in the area (or so I was told)

I tried to get 7 swans a-swimming, but they wouldn't cooperate!

Beautiful birds! Those swans just don't care if you want to link them up to a song or not! :-)

Oooh I wish we had swans near my place. I think I saw an 'oyster catcher' or something similar on the beach this morning. Nice photos.
