info

Unfortunately parasitic jaegers were not as easy to photograph as the other species. I have seen them several times from a quite significant distance as they were trying to get food over meadows where oystercatchers and redshanks nested. From a distance I could see concerned parents collectively repelling the aggressor’s attack. The parasitic jeager nests on the ground. Its weight is below 400 grams, with a wingspan of about 1.2 meters.
