There is like a sea of purple in my parents garden! The bees love it.
It's that sky shot again...meaning I didn't get the chance to take any other photos!
A great example of nature taking over man made structures.
Another day of failing to get a nice photo on my way to or from my jobs. This is in my 'garden'.
I've really been wanting to capture the majority of the species of birds we get here, during these 30 days wild, and a Collared Dove was on the cards the past couple days so I was pretty happy snapping this guy as I walked home from job #1.
However, on the way home from job #2 I ended up on a mini 'rescue' mission of sorts when I had to help this gorgeous 2ish week old abandoned Herring Gull.
I got such a cute posy photo of this guy back on Thursday of last week but ended up using the one of the Canada Geese instead as you never know how often they are gonna pop by. So I was super glad to see our (what I assume is just a very white) Greylag Goose had graced us with it's presence again today. Even if it did spend the whole time I was there preening.
Jake and I had a day in Edinburgh together today. That doesn't happen often. It was a little disappointing that we ended up with rubbish weather as we'd planned to enjoy the gardens a little more than we managed to. I did get to snap a Treecreeper though! Cute!

Weeds are pretty flowers too.
Well I thought the light shining through the 'windmills' that I used to play with as a kid would make a pretty photo for today...but then on the way home from job #2 the 3 young otters showed face again. I am beyond lucky to get to experience magical moments like seeing young otters in the wild right by where I live <3
I caught another creature on camera that I've been trying to for a while - a stunning little Dunnock!
Diving Cormorants forever making me look twice in case it's actually an otter! Lovely birds to watch on their own though.
I love when the flocks or Canada Geese (or occasionally the Pink Footed Geese) stop by. Look how majestic this show off looks after his preening sesh.
!! ATTENTION !! Adorable male Blackbird holding a tiny flower!!!! Cuteness overload!
Mama gull feeding baby seagulls while daddy gull sleeps and the fake plastic owl that is meant to scare them off, looks on in despair ha.

Spent ages trying to get just one shot of the swifts who are nesting on a house near my parents.
Mizzely day = not much around to photograph on the way home from work.
Another rainy day brought lots of these canny guys to our garden <3
You have no idea how excited I was to see this beauty!!! I spotted her a week or two ago but didn't have my camera and have kept my eye out everytime I pass this spot. She was there today and sat posing for a good little while. Thank you Mrs Thrush!!
Guess what the weather was again today? I didn't even get completely soaked on the way to work or anything.
It's been a while since we've had a Mallard Thursday! Well this week it's on a Friday...
Posing pal at 6am, looking a lot better than I do at that time!

Sums up the recent weather. Glorious...with a looming storm ready to drop at any moment.
One of those 'had nothing to photograph' days.
Bloomin beautiful sights while walking home from work.
I was lucky enough to get to see three young otters playing in the river as I walked home from job #1 this morning. Typically, I didn't have my camera. All I was able yo photograph walking home from job #2 was a Heron a little too far away for my lens...
Bunny bum biscuit!
Handsome couple wondering what the giant clicking thing I was pointing at them was.
Attempting to make every photo (minus #1) in June an outdoor shot in honor of 30 Days Wild. It was a gloomy, light rain, sun behind the clouds kind of day but this bee was still working hard in my back 'garden'.
