Spring Morning Oystercatcher On Visit To My Cottage Garden In Scone By Perth Perthshire Scotland

Tour Scotland short 4K Spring morning travel video clip of the sight and sounds of an Oystercatcher eating on visit and trip to my cottage garden in Scone by Perth, Perthshire, Britain, United Kingdom. The oystercatcher is a large, stocky, black and white wading bird. It has a long, orange red bill and reddish pink legs. In flight, it shows a wide white wing stripe, a black tail, and a white rump that extends as a V between the wings. A common wader, the oystercatcher is very noisy with a loud peep-ing call. Originally a coastal species, oystercatchers have moved further inland. There are twelve species of oystercatcher in the world, all of which look very similar, being either black and white or plain black, with a red bill and pinky legs. One further species of oystercatcher became extinct in the 20th century and some of those still surviving are now endangered or threatened. Spring in the northern hemisphere technically starts on the 20 March, at the equinox, and lasts until the 20 or 21 June, the Summer solstice. This is also the case in Scotland.The months that make up the Spring season are March, April and May. However, for travelling at this time of year, I will be referring to April and May. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day. Find things to see and do in Scotland where you are always welcome. Being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings.
