Beach Hopscotch

Have you ever wondered why sea birds have two legs? They seem to spend an awful lot of time standing on just one of them when they are ashore. I suppose if they only had one, they'd swim in circles.

A Pied Oystercatcher I think, but because I'm not much of a bird watcher. I'll happily take any suggestions!

Good observation. Maybe they don't like sticking their feet in the sand!

Definitely a pied oystercatcher. They are all over the central coast beaches to and I loved watching them. They walk so fast as the waves arrive!

Thanks Nathalie, I've got a few more puzzles coming up over the next week or three, so I hope you stay tuned!
