On holiday in Devon last week, I saw a gull like bird, from above, flying over the Dart Estuary. It looked black with a white bird shape in the middle. Or you could say, white with a black border. As I say, this was a view from above the bird, as we were visiting Dartmouth Castle at the time, and it really caught my eye. Can anyone help identify it. Thanks.

Did you manage to see the bill, and was it long and red? If so it could have been an Oystercatcher.

Thank you Colin. I'm not sure about the bill, but I've looked at pictures of an oystercatcher online and I'm sure that you are right.
