Saturday's Critters


The sail boats in yesterday's post were moored along the mouth of the Six Mile Water river in Antrim which flows into Lough Neagh.  The walk along here was lovely and the area was crowded with all kinds of gulls, ducks and swans.




The greedy gulls were cheeky enough to swoop in close to snatch food as there were lots of people having lunch.


A swan posed nicely for me as we both admired the views out to Lough Neagh

 

Thanks to Eileen for hosting Saturday's Critters HERE

And Misti at Camera Critters HERE

Enjoy the weekend!

  11. The white geese are so stately. Gulls sure know where to hang out for a handout. - Margy

  15. Christine, congrats on your new (for me) blog! I've been out of the blogosphere for a bit, and was happy to discover it! Your photos made me smile; I adore swans, geese, ducks and birds, and your cute critters today brought some sunshine into a dark, damp and dreary Saturday!

    Happy weekend,
    Poppy
