I wanted to do some birdwatching & bird photography today, so I decided to go to nearby Strangford Lough. Shall I go to the Sluice at Newtownards about 5 miles away? No, I'll go towards Comber & head off near Castle Espie. On the way I decided to cut off between N'Ards & Comber & go down near the shoreline. A long narrow road brought me to the N.W. shore of Strangford Lough. The tide was out & so were the birds!

I went for a walk with my dog to Ballymacormick Point 14-3-2010. Unfortunately, the tide was in...just my luck. I can't always choose the time to go.

I went for a walk today with my dog in our local park "Linear Park". I suddenly noticed a Pied Wagtail standing on the path about 20 feet in front of me. I stopped & we both observed one another for a quite sometime. It didn't seem at all bothered by my presence & as I had to walk on (slowly) it just hopped about, keeping the same distance from me & then eventually flew away. It was a nice encounter.
