A Very Distinctive Voice

This bird has a very distinctive voice but I would need my bird expert, Martin Humphreys, to identify it for me.

I thought I was getting better at bird identification¬†from their songs but it seems there doesn’t need to be much of a gap in practice for the knowledge gained to all go out the window.

Late Evening Light

These were the first shorts I took during my late evening walk down on the marshes. I enjoyed the walk and doing the photography – say no more ūüôā

Evening in the Park

By the time I took these photos on my iPhone on my way back home from Coedbach Park the Blackbirds had stopped singing to each other.

Unique circumstances – I am sorry I didn’t record them – there are so many of them in the park and the breeze was blowing the sound of motorway traffic out to sea so it could hardly be heard at all – like I always say, “the circumstances of what we see and here are always unique to the time and place!”

Galloway Sunset

A sunset is a sunset and yet they are all unique. Even in the same place, each night its is different and never fails to move me.

Watching the Sun Set

Looking South might have been another title for this post. That is not necessarily the direction these sentinels are looking but they are in Scotland where we had hoped to be this last Easter.

Galloway Sunset

The sun goes down on Galloway, SW Scotland.

It’s different every time. No matter how many times you see it, the sunset is never the same, and there is never any tiring of it!

Eerie Creatures on the Marshes

Sunshine and rain– We’ve been away to foreign parts recently – well, France! More importantly, we managed to avoid much of the torrential rain in Britain during that period. Unbelievably, we arrived home to Britain and Wales to dry, sunny, hot weather – amazing ūüôā Here’s a lovely sunset from the other night to prove it.

Eerie Sounds – There were some strange sounds coming from the marshes and so I went to investigate . . .

All will be revealed – no cudding ūüėČ

Yoiks!
