This was kindly linked to me on Facebook, thought it was worth linking here for your enjoyment.

Looks like a great show, the organisers show be proud. Well done.

All Aboard the Skylark

I took a walk with family members along the Floodgates footpath in Ards last Saturday. I promised my sister that we would see a Skylark. I was starting to panic when we eventually spotted one singing on the up before it floated down to the ground again. And then, would you believe it, we nearly tripped over one on the pathway!

A few other birds about too. Spotted this Reed Bunting, not often seen in my area, at least by me!


Unidentified by me, poor photo too but I was hoping someone would know what it was. There was 5 of them bouncing about from bush to bush. Any ideas?

Kestrel hoovering over the path.

Some of the views.

Tides out, way out!

Plenty of air traffic popping into the local airport right beside the path.
