THE WEEKEND ROUNDUP and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS

Time for THE WEEKEND ROUNDUP and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS and this week the letter is U and UNDER.  Now although these images are all taken on a walk not the same walk.  The first two are at the Quoile River and below you have a REFLECTION image and water UNDER this bridge. Then a fisherman hoping there are fish UNDER the water!



The second walk I took through my town down to the Marina and on to Pickic area. On the way I passed the ULSTER Property Sales shop and if you have the cash you could buy the ULSTER bank.  Then at the Marina, water was flowing UNDER these two tunnels and these stones were UNDER the water.  Finally I photographed this train UNDER the bridge and would you say the rails are UNDULATING!   I was going to add this final image last week for TILL until I saw the word UNDER.  I am sure I have UTTERLY exhausted you last week with the long walk so we will have a bit of a breather this week and I hope to see you all next time.

THROUGH MY LENS

This is the Sam Thompson Bridge and links the Airport Road/Titanic Quarter to the Victoria Park in Belfast and I am linking to THROUGH MY LENS.
On 15 September 1906 Victoria Park opened to the public. It replaced an earlier pleasure park on Dargan Island, now Queen’s Island. Victoria Park features a lake, originally used for boating, with two small wooded islands which offer sanctuary for nesting swans and ducks. The park once had an Edwardian swimming pool which was in use until the 1970s.



Today Victoria Park is designated as an Area of Special Scientific Interest (ASSI) and is part of the Special Protection Area (SPA). Birdlife is abundant in the park, particularly in the winter months. Species found in the park include Greylag geese, Black headed and Herring gull, Heron, Little Egret, Mute swan, Mallard, Tufted duck, and Pied and Grey wagtail. The mudflats surrounding the park are rich in oysters, cockles, snails and worms, such as lugworms and ragworms. These provide a vital source for populations of wintering waders and wildfowl, including Oyster catchers, Terns and Redshank.
