Tea Plantation in Malawi

Judith and I were driving round part of the Tea Plantation in Malawi while we were staying at the ‘ Cottage’ and we came across these men who had loaded the bags onto the truck and were taking them to the factory to be processed.

Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving any comments.

On one of my early morning walks, I always take my camera and yesterday I saw this Meadow pipit gathering material for her nest.

The heavens are telling the glory of God; 
they are a marvellous display of his craftsmanship.

SATURDAY CRITTERS - Guillemots at Bangor Harbour

I saw and photographed these Black Guillemots a week ago and all had paired up and found their own nesting holes in the side of the Bangor pier.  I am standing on the very edge of the pier to get some of these shots!!!!  

Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments.

Have a lovely weekend.

Time for Weekend Reflections and Friday’s Hunt.  This week it is the letter L, Favourite and Antique. I visited WWT Centre at Caste Espie with my bird group this week and I was horrified at the amount of foliage they had cut down leaving the ducks hardly anywhere to hide or even nest.  Then we were confronted with these huge LEGO birds.  Creative but we agreed a bit out of place in this place although I am sure children would love them.

The LEGO birds at the Hawaiian goose, the Red breasted goose and the the last one is Suki the Spoon-billed Sandpiper.  
It has 12,800 bricks and took 110 hours ot complete.

This is a LONG corridor shot which was taken at the “Cottage in Malawi and you can just see Judith carrying stuff in from the car.  This is only half of the corridor!

This image is taken at the LONG Hole near Bangor Pier and also has a lovely REFleCION of the rocks in the water.

This Victorian Gazebo is a wonderful ANTIQUE which has been standing on the Bangor sea front for generations and although I could not find the date it was erected, I know it was there in the 1890's.   That day the two people you see just to the right of this shot had just finished feeding the Pigeons.

Now do you have a FAVOURITE today?
