Three Oystercatchers made a welcome appearance at the pier. Although called Oystercatchers they actually prefer to eat mussels and cockles and use that bright orange bill to break into the shells. Each individual inherits a distinctive technique to do this and as such the feeding habits can vary.
After the birds left, all went quite until i spotted a dolphin by the fish factory. The solitary animal was showing signs of feeding behavior, with long dives in and around the same area. This made it quite hard to get a picture but i just about managed to get this lucky shot. If this where a humpback whale the picture would have been perfect as they use the markings on the tail fin for identification purposes however when working with Bottlenose dolphins we need a side view of the dorsal fin to identify individuals.
