November Nuggets.

Still unseasonably warm but a frost promised tonight inland.

Fortunately the annual return of Pink Footed Geese has occurred.  Here again to overwinter in their thousands.  We hear them calling as they leave their roosting ground and return in the evening.

Also come to stay with us for the winter are thousands of Whooper Swans.

When the night sky is clear enough ......


Photo by Lesley Jennings. Lesley lets us know when there is to be a visible Aurora Borealis.  I was snoring my head off at 1a.m.  when this was happening.....

There have been the usual Firework Displays.  And Halloween Spectaculars.






 Aden Country Park.  Photos by the Dawn Patroller.  There was a spooky performance throughout the woodland, trees were lit up. Awesome spectacular. Then the fireworks.

Tonight is our nearest village Cairnbulg Harbour Bonfire  Or Bondie as they are called here.  There was a childrens competition to make a guy.  They are all on top of the bonfire!




 November nuggets to warm you.

Excellent photos! There are fireworks being set off nearby us as I read. Warming, though frightening to little Tilly. However, she has settled down on a chair and is no longer peering into the hallway with her ears back...
