SATURDAY CRITTERS -Tory Island Day 2 Part 1

This is the second day on Tory Island and as I had so many photographs I have divided them into 2 posts, the first one today and the second one on Monday.  Even dividing the photographs in two, I still had a lot so I put them into a slide show both days.   A video will follow the slide shows at the end.  The first shot is was taken when I first got up.  

Chris and I got up at 5.00am to see if we could see the Corncrakes and although we heard all 4 we still did not see any.  Having had breakfast with Chris, I went down to the pier to see him leave on the ferry.  Unfortunately, the weather was not as kind to him on this trip and most of the people were sick although Chris wasn't.

So join me as I walk around a different part of the island and see the birds and amazing scenery.  I do not think it needs anymore explanation.

Now sit back and enjoy the SLIDE SHOW which can be accessed at

If there is a black space below, click it and the slide show will appear.



I have put together a video below and I would ask you to remember that I was on top of very tall cliffs, the wind was blowing hard and I was only about a foot from the edge trying to get these clips so some of them will be shaky and some a bit out of focus, however I think they are worth showing you as it will give you a better idea of the whole island.

Now the VIDEO can be accessed at

I hope you enjoyed both the slide show and video and will join my again on Monday for the second part of this day.  I am linking this post with Eileen's meme SATURDAY CRITTERS

  3. One bird there looks like a Killdeer. One of my favorites is the little white house with the red trim. Hey, if you go through the boat pictures fast, it is chugging along and looks like a video!

  13. I'm getting caught up with your Tory Island posts. I didn't recognize the significance until you introduced us to the King. I remember him from watching one of our travel shows here in the US.

  18. What a wild and beautiful island this looks to be. I can see how the seas could be rather unkind to this little boat. Great slide show and video! Enjoyed the both.
