Eurasian Oystercatcher - Tjeld - Haematopus ostralegus

At Stag Rocks this is one of the few wader species present throughout the year with non-breeders are present throughout the breeding season. The time at which the majority leave indicates that Scandinavian breeders may be invloved and it is well known that many Scandavian birds use the east coasts of the UK both on autumn passage and in winter.

The record count during the period I counted waders there is 151 individuals on 12 December 1986.
