Water Fowl

Swans and geese and ducks at Lake Windermere

Sea Gulls

A familar sight for us. We have lots of gulls here even though we don't have much water.

Ducks

We also saw lots of Mallards, but they were camera shy.

A fabled monster?

It's Nessie! No, we didn't make it to Loch Ness. But we have seemed to have gotten a picture that could pass for the “Monster”. It is a black swan. It was too far away to get a good photo. Nessie's cousin perhaps
