Some more of the birds we saw along the way in the slideshow, but my fave shot of the day was this…

Pink Flamenco

After walking through the reserve, we then took Cal to see the incubation part, and one of the wardens gave a show and tell.

after the duckfest we went off in search of the cafe, going past the insect garden where flowers were just springing into action



then Cal wanted to be carried as he needed a rest

luckily there was a playground in sight and Cal found a 2nd (?3rd?4th) wind.

so that’s  the last of our trip to Wetlands Trust Nature Reserve at Washington 

Tomorrow we are in charge of Phil’s other grandson Matty, and this is a first time for us. Looking forward to it, and there maybe a few photo’s of the event. 🙂

      1. Oh ha it’s actually that thing they’re on in the last photo. If the other person gets off unexpectedly you can come crashing down and fall hard on your butt or worse.

  2. Cal is so cute. I love the flamingo shot too. Those birds fascinate me. I think one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen was 3 bright pink flamingos flying in the clear blue sky one day on the beach in Mexico. Beautiful!
