WEEKEND RFLECTIONS - Tory Island (Part 19)

The main reflections will be in the video at the end however these are a couple of shots of the Mute Swan and the Canada Goose and were taken at the lake I showed you the other day from Tory Island.





There is a short video, CLICK HERE if it does not appear below.



This is my last post from Tory Island however tomorrow I will show a critter I found where I was saying with my friend in Donegal after I came off the island. You are going to love this critter, well I did anyway!!  I wonder can you guess what it might be?  Go on, have a go for a bit of fun!

I am linking this post with WEEKEND REFLECTIONS.


Many thanks for your visit and also to all who have followed this series on Tory Island and left comments.

  2. I do love the unusual friends.
    Guessing about the critter? A hedgepig? A badger? An otter? All things I would dearly love to see.

  8. Does that Swan have a longer than average neck - brill photo!!! I'm hoping you spotted a dolphin or a whale but hopefully a whole pod of dolphins?!

  9. Hi. No the Swan does not have a longer neck. I think it is looking for its mate, the Canada goose! No you have not guessed right! I wonder will anyone get it.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the 3 weeks posts from Tory Island. Don't worry, I also visited Great Saltee Island. With 2,5000 stills and 87 video clips and have not started looking or working on them even to delete many! I am hoping to get them sorted before I return to Malawi in December and schedule them in while I am away. OK it is not a water vole!
