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.

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. thanks Francis, could do with a bit more sun, it’s very changeable here at the moment, strong winds so not the best for outings.

    They’re brave kids! I was always scared of those teeter totters growing up.

    1. not sure what a teeter totter is (presume ducks?) but hope you’ve managed to conquer your fear by now 🙂

        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.

    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!

    1. Now that would be cool to see them fly! One day I hope.
