A friendly background noise on any beach from these noisy and always very busy birds.

Do you get many oysters in Montrose Moira ?
Off course you will be aware they are an aphrodisiac.
I must get myself along to Montrose Town Hall on Tuesday nights to participate in the OAP's Yoga night !!
Good shot.

Gorgeous Moira! This would make a lovely RSPB poster! (Looks like weather on Sat is to be better than Sun.) Gill
