In a busy car park at the Highland Wildlife Park in the Cairngorms, sits an oystercatcher on her eggs.

Her ‘nest’ is just a scrape in the ground – with a convenient stone for her to rest her beak against.

There were cars coming in and out and she never moved – just concentrated on the important job she was doing.
