Winter sunshine

With many changes in my life over the last two and a half years my blog has fell by the wayside. Slowly getting the time to get back out with the camera, so hopefully I’ll get posting a few more posts here.

A quick check on the tide tables I knew I could get to Dundrum inner bay for the incoming tide. This means the wildlife feeding on the mudflats gets pushed closer to me and my camera.  So getting in to a good hiding spot that gives a clear view I await the tide and hope the dog walkers don’t come near me. Has the birds come closer to shore they are not coming my way. This is a waiting game and one I don’t mine. More time to watch nature and enjoy the breeze thats picking up. At least its blowing  inland.

A Grey Heron feeding in a fresh water river that runs onto the coastal mudflats. Shot this short video on the spur of the moment and has you can see I was not set up for video. This is something I have been thinking about doing more off, so watch this space.

Black tailed Goodwit, this is a first for me. I have never seen these birds in this area before so was lucky to get a few shots.

Not the greatest photo but you see where it got it’s name.

With the tide filling this small bay I move a halfmile down into the main bay. Shot these next couple of photo while on the move.

Thank you for joining me here at Dundrum. It’s in Co.Down Northern Ireland, just a few miles from the Mourne mountains. The Bay is a protected nature reserve with a walk on the old railway enbankment running the length of the bay.

Stay safe,

George..

    • Thank you, I believe I needed a break from blogging, my heart was not in it. But decided to keep it ticking over till I decide where I’m going, within myself. Never stopped the photography and am looking at new projects for the coming year. So at least one or two blog posts a month are planned.
      With another year nearly done I send you and your family a big 🇮🇪 hug 🤗 my friend. ☘️♥️☘️
