C'mon, Ed, don't you give your birds a little wash and brush up, first Wink Tongue
...and she's standing cross-legged, desperate for the loo, while you faff about with that lens cap ...!!!
No wonder she's "giving you the eye" ...!!!
Nowhere near as good as yesterday's upload !!! Smile Smile Smile

An excellent capture, Ed, she obviously found a tasty, if somewhat grubby, morsel in that muddy water Smile Carol

Simon beat me to it - I was going to suggest you get your models to wash before having their picture taken!
You've done well here Ed - I love the bright beak, legs and eye.
Haven't managed to get as close as this to an oystercatcher - we saw plenty in the Hebrides.

Great shot, sharp and well exposed, not always easy with predominantly dark birds

A super capture of one of my favourite birds.
Looks really good with that mud halfway up its beak.
