Winter 2018/19 Oystercatcher tracking
Thanks to the excellent analysis by Joanne Morten, a PhD student at the University of Exeter, we can share the 2018/19 winter results from the ten trackers fitted to adult Oystercatchers at Dawlish Warren on 12 November 2018. In the video, each coloured track represents the history of one Oystercatcher. You can clearly see how the birds use the wider Exe Estuary and usually return to the Dawlish Warren roost on the high tides.
