Daughter messaged me this mornin."Up to much today mama?"...oh I sensed she wanted to do something on her day off....fancy a wee wander up the Haugh I replied...Yeah sure...within 10 mins a was dressed with 3 layers and out the door...although I forgot I not only had to defrost my car but also my sons as he parked behind me Grrrr...I hate being delayed!!!!
We arrived at the Haugh about 10 and the sun was out and it was beautiful
I told her today am gonna show you your 1st Kingfisher...I like a mission as you all know
Passed a fair few redwings on the way to the marsh hide
A wee shy Dunnock
And a gull overhead
Don't leave on our account...charming!!
View from the Marsh hide...FROZEN
Mmm....maybe a shouldn't have said a Will show her a kingie lol....
Nowt around even though this would be the best place to see it we headed down to the Causeway Hide
Passing a Reed Bunting
And a treecreeper
Some birds though....still sleeping!
And some awake
Think she was getting bored so a was like let's go back to marsh hide before we head back up to the car
She hadnt even taken the camera out the bag I loaned her for the morning as she sat down again in the hide and low on behold I saw it
He was sitting waiting for us....all of a sudden the camera was whipped out the bag lol
This is one taken by her...still my camera though lol
He got breakfast
Had to wrestle the camera off her in the end and say times up before I turn blue and it wasn't gonna be Kingfisher blue lol
All in all it was a success...thankfully...Don't think she will be using my camera again though...taking better pics than me is a no no lol
Thanks for looking
Hope you enjoyed
Great views and variety of birds Linda. I do like the Kingfisher photo's
A nice chilled morning out.....
Nice to see the redwings, and the kingie, a lucky moment and fab shots. Worth braving the cold, and saving you egg on the face.
