Office Oystercatchers

It's that time of year again, and the office oystercatchers have returned. For the last three or four years, a pair have been coming to raise their offspring in our car park. They seem to think that the gravel verge outside the meeting room at the back of the building, a good mile or so from the tidal River Tay, is a good stand-in for a stony beach. They are not popular with the car dealership that operates in the other half of the building, as they tend to depreciate the cars a bit - clawmarks, and other hazards of having birds around - but we like them.
