Oystercatchers, Pawle Sound

What I was after here was a cormorant which had been drying its wings just behind the two middle oystercatchers - it took off as I was fishing for the camera. Unless a cormorant is standing on a buoy or whatever, and hasn't had a chance to dry out - in which case it will hang on, swaying and lurching like a drunk on a sidewalk, until you're almost on top of it - I find it's normally quite shy. The oystercatchers aren't even looking my way.
