Another vibrant and remarkable capture Glenn...thanks for sharing.

Not only do you present a sharp and colourful image of the Oystercatcher but you show us much about your subject's way of life.

Lloyd has hit the nail on the head.

Great use of fill flash but the bird looks a mite surprised!

Thanks Jeremy.

I didn't look at the EXIF data.
Change that to excellent front lighting!
