A parcel of oystercatchers

A parcel of oystercatchers at Blackpill with County Hall and the Tower looking strangely close in the background. (Alternatively the collective noun for oystercatchers could be stew or rockefeller.)

The same oystercatchers but with another type of bird too. Intensive research on my part, done using this photo very enlarged and blurry and my well-known ornithological expertise, suggests that they might be Black-tailed Godwits. (Or Greenshanks but Black-tailed Godwits is a much more impressive name.)
