SATURDAY CRITTERS - Mount Stewart Birds (Part 5)

Recently I visited the National Trust property of Mount Stewart near Newtownards and walked round the lake.  
Last Monday I showed you the last of the autumn colours of the trees and on 
Tuesday you saw the beautiful resident Mute Swans with their cygnets, 
Wednesday I spied the interesting Fungi at the base of an old tree, 
so today I am showing you the other birds I found on the lake that day.
I am linking to SATURDAY CRITTERS.

On the lake apart from the Mute Swans and their two cygnet, there were Black headed gulls, Little Grebes, and Tufted ducks (M and F) in this post. 
However there were also Gadwall and Mallard ducks.

Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments.


  1. What an absolutely glorious area. Riches everywhere.

  2. The babies are cute. The black ducks look like they have candy corn beaks!

  3. Swans are such elegant birds. Lovely photos.

  4. Beautiful Swans. Love the reflections!

  5. Hello Margaret, they are all beautiful birds. But, the swans win the prize with me, they are lovely. Great post and photos. Thank you so much for linking up your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day!
