Oystercatchers seem to have a good breeding season and i have seen several pairs with young in the south mainland. These are known as Shalders in Shetland

Young birds tend to stay close to a parent and are taught how to catch worms

An intruder is chased away, the threat from Skuas and Gulls cannot be under estimated

Lapwings have not been so lucky with a large number robbed, Hoddie Crows been the main culprits
