Saturday 30 May

As I find I am playing catch up with this blog I am going to close it for the time being, I may add odd days but as most of my photos are on flickr or facebook I feel that I am chasing round for valuable time so if you wish to see my photos check out

 Yarrow Valley Country Park. Appreciation Group

on facebook 

I also put some on Flickr

Thank you to all who have followed me these few years but time always goes faster as we age ( my mother told me and she was right ) so I seem to be running out of time to do things so I must concentrate on now :)

Another sunny walk - I have to show off our beautiful swan family, Edwina was on the water with them, she is a good mother.

 Wildfowl 

Two Canada Geese coming in for feeding time
Grey Wagtail 

We also call them Turks heads as well as Ribwort - Plantago lanceolata

The leaves Ribwort - Plantago lanceolata

 Edwina & her Babes

 She is wary of all that come near her babes

 I love this one looking at Mum

 They are already taking the sunflower hearts

We always feed sunflower hearts they are packed with goodness for the little ones and when they fledge and go we can usually tell the ones that were born on the lodges if they return - they take the hearts straight away, others are waiting for bread and ignore the feed.
