Out on their own and nicely captured. Glad they were headed towards the parents. Kids still need a watchful eye on them ;)

I've not seen Oystercatchers in such deep water Donald. It seems deep enough for them to swim!!

Glad they managed across that algae safely.

Thanks for showing them to us my friend.

I guess being youngsters they don't know they are not ducks but waders (lol). Great double of these two cuties. TFS Donald!
