    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Tina, they look like greenshank, a migratory bird we sometimes see passing here in Winter 🤗💖 xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Ann-Christine, these were lucky captures! 🙂💜 We couldn’t hear the birds’ calls or wings over the sound of the wind and waves and if we had looked the other way we wouldn’t have known they were there. Eivor and Pearl looked at the display for a moment and carried on sniffing the seaweed – they’re always quiet around birds, except when one bird tries to attack another 🤗💖 xxx

      1. Ah, My dogs are very attentive to birds – but they have not the extensive experience of seabirds as Eivor and Pearl has. And – lucky is a good thing to be – but in combination with a very good photographer, the outcome is superb!
