GOOD FENCES - South Donegal (Part 4)

Today I am showing you the many different fences that I saw in Donegal and at the end I have a video of the Pale bellied Brent Geese that were feeding in a field.  These are Black headed Gulls below.











Above are the Pale bellied Brent Geese so I cropped the shot so you could see them although you will have a better view on the video at the end of the post.








I loved the red wagon wheels outside these thatched cottages.



A lot of Donegal of the countryside is quite barren and only fit for sheep to graze on so there are a lot of fences and dry stone walls all over this county and also a lot of sheep.



CLICK HERE if the video does not appear below.  The noise you will hear is mainly the sea and also probably the rain!!!



I hope you enjoyed seeing a bit more of Donegal through the ‘fences’ meme.

I am linking this post to GOOD FENCES.


Many thanks for visiting and also for those who leave comments.

  6. The geese are so different from those around here. I love the sound on that video!! Nice fences and a good latch on that gate. With fences, drystone walls, and sheep, I would definitely like to visit that area someday. I enjoyed this post, Margaret.

  17. My goodness, so many awesome fences. I love the stone fence and the latch ... impressive. I also love the black sheep ... don't see those often, at least not around here. Great pictures, Margaret.

    I haven't forgotten about the Video. I just am not very good at taking pictures with the screen as opposed to the viewfinder, so I am working on getting something that is good enough to even attempt to edit. Hopefully, it will be soon. I will keep you posted on my progress, then we can set up a time for you to share your vast knowledge. Be well, Margaret ...

  25. Lots of great fences here today. I loved that gate with the stone wall beside it. - I love the countryside here, so lush and green. I enjoyed all your photos today very much.

  26. Interesting rock fence - it looks like the owner hasn't finished building it:) I kind of like the barren-ness of this landscape (as long as it's green:) ). My interest for sheep is because at one time I would like to make a sweater from beginning to end (bucket list)

  27. A great variety of fences, and livestock. I really like the stone fence.

  28. Oh my, your pictures are wonderful. The stone wall and rocky terrain. The hilly walkways beyond the gate. The thatched roofs. This is my first visit to your blog and I'll be back.

  32. You have such remarkable views where you are. I really like that fence with the stones lines up every so nicely to create a nice wall! All great shots.

  33. I loved the sound on the video. Looking at beautiful birds and listening to the sea make a great combination I think. They do have a lot of fences in Donegal, don't they? As Rose said, the jackpot of fences! I enjoyed seeing the countryside.

  36. You have got such a great selection here of fences, and still love those sheep

  37. The image with the cow leaning over the fence had me wondering how much resistance the fence could take if the cow gave it a shove.
