More suppression in Norfolk!

Yesterday while killing time waiting for a train in Sheringham (yes, I have actually left The Point for a while, I figured late July was the best bet for some time away, should be safe), I was admiring the mural on the sea-wall and spotted this little image clearly depicting an Oystercatcher species other than ostralegus. Although identification of the black Oystercatchers is pretty difficult,  I would imagine that African Black Oystercatcher Haemantopus moquini is the most likely to reach European shores given that it's the nearest of these sedentary species. There was no reference to the date of the occurrence being celebrated, but someone has some serious explaining to do!
