After all the bad weather messages of recent times, today we are talking about the oysterfisher. The North Sea is not the only breeding ground of the wattbird. For years, oysterfisher couples have used the chic, green ISW flat roof for breeding and as a children’s room. The oysterfisher has again found the ISW building in 2020. For the chicks this is sometimes dangerous: they can run immediately after hatching, but not yet fly – and then plump down.

By the way, oysterfisher don’t like oysters so much. Far too hard. Easier to crack are mussels. And they don’t say no to wattworms. An urban oysterfisher just takes earthworms.

We, as ISW, are happy to contribute to nature conservation and of course we also enjoy the attentive animals!
