oystercatcher wooden bird

£ 46.95

Elegant hand carved and painted wooden Oystercatcher.

The Oystercatcher is a large, stocky, black and white wading bird with 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.

The Oystercatchers main diet is cockles and the population is vulnerable if cockle beds are overexploited. They breed on almost all UK coasts spending their winters there; where they are joined on the East coast by birds from Norway.

Made from sustainable wood, each sculpture has a lovely authentic and highly individual character. Each carved bird and base is unique and therefore may vary slightly.

All the birds in this range are designed in the UK by British artists and produced in Bali under fair trading conditions.
