Weymouth is a place by the Manukau Harbour Auckland. The nearest shopping centre is in Glendon, just down the road and not far away is Manurewa. It is Southern Auckland.
There is a park going on to a beach by the Manukau Harbour and yes, people do swim here.
Well, this day I went to Weymouth the Oyster catchers were together on the rocks. Every now and then they would jump up and fly here and there. So I followed them with the camera.
I don’t know if these birds actually eat Oysters, but they eat small living things from New Zealand waters.
The birds usually stay together in groups and resemble oysters on the rocks. They are flighty, nervous birds and make a pip pip noise as they fly. I don’t know the reason why they constantly change places or whether it is follow the leader.
The first is flying over the water, maybe it is seeking small fish?
