Buzz Off!

By brian1208
This Oyster Catcher was happily minding its own business sat on its nest at Minsmere when this Gull decided to threaten it. The response from the Oyster Catcher was sufficiently aggressive that the gull did indeed buzz off then went to try and make up to a female by bringing beakfuls of mud to their scappy looking nest

Thanks all.

We loved Minsmere Ali, so much so that we hope to get up there another time when the light is better, maybe stay in Southwold and get the best of both locations, Minsmere by day and Southwold by night Smile
