GOOD FENCES - Bird Class & Autumn colours

Following on from Monday’s post when I took my bird class to the Flood Gates and then to Kiltonga Lake, these are some more of the shots I took that day.  After that I made my way to Bangor Walled Garden where I took the rest of the photographs.  I am linking this post with GOOD FENCES. So enjoy and may your Thursday be a bright one.


Aiden is looking though my telescope at the thousands of Pale bellied Brent and much more.


Some more of the groups at the Flood Gates above and 
 below, later when we stopped for coffee.



This is the Lake at Kiltonga where tomorrow 
I will be showing you some of the birds we saw.


The gardeners have started planting for the spring season ahead and here you see the Pansies. So enjoy the rest of the colourful plants I photographed.



Rosehips




Chard








I hope you enjoyed this post and I thanks you for visit today.


Many thanks to all those who leave comments.

  19. Looks like great group and a great outing. I especially enjoyed the colorful flowers/plants/leaves you showed us today.. We are getting ready to go into winter --so not too much is blooming here in the Glade in Tennessee right now. We do have some good Fall Colors around --as the leaves on our trees turn!

    Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  21. Hi Margaret - I'm so excited to be able to comment on your blog again! I caught up with you at Run*a*Round Ranch for Good Fences. I didn't want to join Google Plus, and I couldn't figure out how to comment on it without joining. Your post is wonderful, and what a great place to go birding! Thank you for stopping by my blog...maybe now we can reconnect.!

  23. Fences everywhere ... and Pansies in the fall? Do they make it through the winter? Your fall colors are wonderful and varied. I so enjoy going for these walks with you :) Have a wonderful weekend, Margaret ...

  24. Wow! I love the chard, and the yellow stemmed plants. The yellow stemmed one is just exquisite with the sun shining on it! What are these big red fruits with the thorny stems? Radishes? Pomegranates?

  26. I did enjoy your post very much. I bet it's fun to get with a group of people and bird watch. The shot of the birds at the lake is really lovely. Also all those gorgeous flowers, I would so have enjoyed being there and did enjoy your photos. The chard was so colorful and that last shot with the brick wall and creeping vine is delightful.
