A very gloomy day, with a light wind, and cold. Typical March weather?
Just look at that sky. The sea was very rough. No surfers today - or boats.
The Herring Gulls are in force, choosing mates or reinforcing previous relationships, and being very loud about it all.
A shouting Gull.
Lesser Black Backed Gulls returning to the North East of Scotland from South England and the Mediterranean.
Later my friend L came to paint. She was doing a Highland Cow. I was doing Dyson.
Exhausted after talking art for two hours!
L's son is our joiner and he called in to measure up for insulating more of the shedudio, fitting double glazing and new doors that dont rattle in the ever present wind! I just hope I can afford it all.....
Later while we were having our evening meal in the dining room who came calling but Dyson and two lady friends, (both called Hetty.) Poor photo as it began to rain again but all three are in this.
It is now obvious we are in the breeding season. Pairs of every species we have in the garden, many, are now collecting nesting material. Isnt nature wonderful. So glad I didnt have to walk around with a mouthful of twigs and straw...........
