Fairburn Ings

                           

This is me wrapped up in my warm Equafleece for a visit to Fairburn Ings with Ollie and my peeps. Fairburn Ings is a RSPB reserve and, because there are a lot of water birds here, we doggies have to be on lead but I don't mind too much as it is a fun place to explore anyway.

                                   

                This is pointing the way that we went through the woodlands.

                  


And this is me in one of the hides that are set up around the reserve to watch the birds.

                   

                               We saw a seagull and two cormorants watching for fish.

                                      

     This is the cormorant. He is very fine with shiny feathers and a big beak.

                   

       Then I caught sight of a swan swimming by - looking lovely in the sunlight. 

                    

           But there is plenty for us doggies to do as well as  watching birds BOL 

                     

                         The woodland is full of lovely scents and leaves for furtling.

                    

                             Me and Ollie sharing a particularly good area :-) 

                    

                     We watched a duck having a drink from a little pond near the cafe. 

                   

                                       And then it was time to go home. 

                   

                        Ollie was exhausted after all the walking and scent trails.

  4. Moth what a wonderful place to walk. Why the white birch trees path is beautiful. I have never seen a cormorant but we here in my Nati City have a Cormorant Fisherman statue given to my city by our sister city in Japan. My Lee knows where a lot of things are in my city and a high priced restaurant had a contest of the first three people to kiss the statue and e-mail them the picture got a fancy dinner for two. She grabbed a friend and they took their selfies with the statue and won the dinners. See how silly my Lee is but I tell you I do love the leftovers she brings me.
    Thanks for being a friend
