Wild Birds at Castle Espie

Yesterday I showed you the ducks and geese in the collection at Castle Espie, however today I am showing you another part of the Wetlands where wild birds fly in and out of.  I mainly took video and you will see that unfortunately the tide was out when I visited one of the hides and so there were virtually no birds on the Lough that day, however here are usually waders seen and from September, there will be 30,000 Light bellied Brent Geese coming in from Arctic Canada.

These are Mallards emerging from beneath wonderful wildflowers and you will see them better on the video which can be accessed at    http://youtu.be/XauSgZFAUpI


I am linking this post with WBW at http://paying-ready-attention-gallery.blogspot.co.uk/

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed the walk around the Wetlands with me.

MANY THANKS TO ALL who left comments yesterday on any of my post.  I appreciate everyone one.
