Proper April weather. Rain followed by sun shine. April showers. Also showered now with birds. Migrants, birds displaying and pairing off.
Down on the sea shore. Pied Wagtail above. Just look at the colour of those rocks. Definitely a painting there.
And up in the sky, Oyster catchers, in formation.
Inland. The Feathered Ones also feeling Spring is in the air.
And even closer to home, a first for our garden, a Blackcap.
We are warming up a bit weather wise. The garden is certainly showing signs and grass is growing, daffodills are in full bloom and tulips are all in bud. Last year I planted quite a lot of bulbs.....and all seem to be successful. Just hoping the Summer bulbs do the same.
This week I have started to plan the Summer Kids Activity Mornings at the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, in July school holidays, with a Sea Birds theme. Plus the One Thousand Sea Birds Challenge for the Art/Craft Gallery at the same. Done extra stints at the same as our beloved manager is taking a well deserved holiday. Plus my usual Art Groups, Wednesday Morning and Thursday afternoon. Tomorrow more planning, but actually a day off, Saturday a very long shift at the museum. So tonight - a glass of the red stuff.
