i am now attempting to knit an albino oystercatcher using wool spun from the cheviot sheep.
oystercatcher,gaelic names gille brighde, drilleachan, dollaid.
gille brighde servant of st bridget, onomatopoeic name,
dolaid means impatient

the call is said to resemble the gaelic ' bi glic, bi glic', ( be wise be wise ) appropriate for a bird under the protection of the patron saint of birds st bride
