These are two images from the ‘Wild Side of Mount Stewart’.  A Dunnock and a beautiful herd of cattle both on or near fences to fit in with the GOOD FENCE meme.  Enjoy.

On my walk around the Demesne at Mount Stewart, I saw several Pheasants and here are shots of one of them. I am linking with Wild Bird Wednesday

I have walked and shown you some of the ‘Wild Side’ of Mount Stewart before and in particular the natural play area but recently I walked even further round the Demesne and photographed the Bluebells although those shots due not do justice to their true beauty.  I am linking with Through My Lens.

Now that the National Trust now own all the  of the 1,000 acres of the Demesne, they can have a better control of the Grey squirrels  and they are winning the battle nowadays as more Red Squirrels have been seen  recently.  During part of the season they leave some food out for them and the rectangular grey area on the inside of the lid is a very cunning but simple method of detecting what coloured Squirrels are feeding here due to the fact that either grey or red hairs are left on the sticky surface of this tape.

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.

Near the end of our time at Kuekenhof Gardens in Holland, we spied an area that had some animals such as Turkey, Pheasant, Hens, Ducks, Pigs and Rabbits in it so these are a few of those images.  
I am linking to Saturday Critters.

We are going to have a breather from the bulb fields and the Amsterdam for a week as I walked on the 'wild side' of Mount Stewart and saw the Bluebells and want to show you them most of next week.

I am linking this post with Friday's Hunt and Weekend Reflections.  Guess what?  The letter this week is T and there are no prizes for guessing you are going to see more TULIPS.  I am going to leave you to pick a FAVOURITE and there are also 2 shots of FOOD that I photographed in one of the restaurants at Keukenhop Gardens in Holland.  You will see a REFLECTION in some of the water/flower images.

These dishes are Chicken Salad and Noodle Salad Vegetarian.
