Sunrise Over Scotland

At last I am sharing my photographs from Scotland.  It was an early start for me, 4.00am!!  We caught the ferry in Larne and heading for Cairnryan.  After a good breakfast we headed on deck to see what birds we could see as the sun rose.  During the crossing of 21/4 hours we saw 17 Species of bird which included Black headed, Herring and Common Gull. Kittiwake, Fulmar, Gannet, Shag, Cormorant, Razorbill, Black and Common Guillemot, some rafts of Eider, Great Crested Grebe and Hooded Crow, however we were delighted to see 20 Red throated Divers and 1 Great Northern Diver. 

I only managed to photograph a Fulmar but it was not got enough to add here so I am  sharing with you the shots I took of the sunrise so  sit back and enjoy.

I hope you enjoyed the sunrise.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Birds in Ward Park

These shots are the rest of the photographs I took as I walked home through Ward Park.  Yesterday I showed you the beautiful Peacock that I saw.

These houses have a lovely view of the ponds and wildlife in the park and when I was walking the other side, I saw these beautiful Camellias in one of their gardens.  These are the first flowers I have seen this year. 

Mallard, both male and female

Graylag Goose

Black headed Gull

This park is about 3 minutes from my home so I walk around it often.  I hope you don't get tired looking at the birds there.

Thanks you for visiting.

Sorry, I did not have time to do an Australian bird this week.

Pretty Peacock

Yesterday I was walking back to my home through Ward Park and I took some photographs.  Today I am sharing the beautiful Peacock that I photographed through 1" square wire mesh!  Tomorrow I will show you the rest of the photos.  I am still working on my photos from Scotland  however I am very disappointed with a lot of them.

I suggest you put these photos into slide mode, grab a cup of coffee. sit down and enjoy the beauty of the Peacock.
