Bit of excitement yesterday.
Our neighbour across the field had a visitor. The China Gander was chasing her ponies and later her children! So she put a plea out on facebook as to who's it was. So the jungle drums facebook locally commenced. We are so far apart geographically, as it is so rural here, it is good we are all in contact on facebook. It did not take long to get the local farmer, who breeds rare breed sheep, wins many prizes etc., to claim ownership. Also of another 2 gone missing and found, one at the SPCA! (Scottish RSPCA). He had only had them a couple of weeks. Goodness knows why they decided to disperse in different directions. Quite funny the one that went to the SPCA was thought to be injured as it couldnt fly - it had, as they all had, its wings clipped!
Although my wings are metaphorically clipped I went to the Prom. 20 mph + winds and spitty rain.
Oystercatchers sheltering in the rocks below the Prom.
A Windsurfer way out. The wreck of the Sovereign on the right and Cairnbulg Beacon on the left.
There were Surfers out too. One here had just fell off! He was doing so well....
Both these boats were struggling in the wind to line up to enter the harbour.
As the rain became heavier I returned to the car and came home.
The deer may well look startled. I just removed its legs again. Its at such a funny angle I am struggling with the legs. One at each corner!
During a break in painting looked out and there was a Treecreeper! Wowee. Dart about so fast. Out of 6 snaps this was the clearest.
Just received an invite to my 2 lovely mates engagement party. Really thrilled to be invited. Two lovely, handsome young men who have been together for some time now and preparing to formalise their relationship. The DP and I will be there.
A great day. Aroond and aboot.
