Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Swallows

Walking alongside the waterfront in Berwick-on-Tweed last week, I spotted these swallows perched on some telephone lines. I cannot remember when I last saw this image. It was quite a dull afternoon so I was able to watch them for some time without having to squint in the face of bright sunshine.






 I would love to have captured them in flight as they flew over the incoming tide at the mouth of the river Tweed but I neither have the skills or the camera. I did try as you can see below!

  3. I know that feeeling, I have once tried too on our dike to catch seagulls, that didn't work either ha,ha. But the ones on the wire look very nice.

  5. Nice pictures - I assume they are gathering before they fly south.

    Not been to the London Camberwell, but you never know. We are just about to book some flights for 2014.

  10. I love to watch the swallows darting over the lake...and I can never even get a good photo of them sitting, so you're definitely one up on me. They're lovely birds and do their part by eating mosquitos.
