BIRDS OF A FEATHER
Mix-and-match outfits mean the sailor seagull and
fisherman oystercatcher are double the fun, with long legs
that help them sit happily on a bedroom shelf. Millions of
seabirds fly across the Wadden each year, so little ones will
recognise their toys in flight or wading along the shore.
