Oystercatcher, chick nest and eggs.

Pure self indulgence, my site so to speak, therefore the content whislt derived from others is at the discreation of the contributors. The adult bird, chick have been completed as has the case. Awaiting the reproduction eggs from Mr Axon and then the case can be assembled. We were fortunate enough to obtain a young chick in "down" that died of natural causes. The adult can from Bewick-Upon-Tweed and was a road casualty.

Oystercatcher chick. It takes a special kind of talent to make taxidermy look this good. The challenge is the size and fragility of the specimen. Speaking technically for all you "experts" who don't undertake taxidermy or do it badly, chick specimens at this stage do not possess adult feather tracts and consequently the skin is more prone to slippage and loose down. Hydration of the legs correctly needs to be done with expert knowledge. Very few taxidermist can acheive this type of result.

Oystercatcher with eggs and chick. This is part way through. The eggs and another chick have yet to be completed. Work in progress currently. A lot more to do on the groundwork also with grasses. The birds as you can see in the images have their feet taped as they are being glued at the time of the photograph.

Oystercatcher chick. It is amazing how the chick blends naturally with the groundwork. Although it was created with that in mind. Thought goes into these cases, which some of you may wish to take note.
