Last Thursday I showed you some ‘fences’ from Glenarm Castle’s Walled Garden and today I am showing you some more.  I have never seen so many hedges in one place and it must take ages to keep them trimmed.  
I am linking with Good Fences.  

I probably have more to show you next week from this Walled Garden.

Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments.

Following on from yesterday’s post, these are a few more birds I photographed on the very dull day on Belfast Lough. I am linking it with Wild Bird Wednesday. Most of the birds were sleeping as the tide was in.  They are Redshank, Ringed Plover, Turnstone and finally one Dunlin.  

Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments.

 It was a very dull day on Strangford Lough and the birds were all quite a distance away, hence the quality of the photographs.  They are Ringed Plover,
Turnstone, Redshank, Lesser Black backed Gull, the first Pale  - bellied Brent that I saw arriving from the Artic Canada, Oystercatcher and finally a Curlew.
I am linking with Through My Lens.  

Tomorrow i have a few more birds to show you 
that I photographed that day along the Strangford Coast.

Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments.

Time for Friday’s Hunt and Weekend Reflections.  This week the letter is K, Old and Stinky.  In Costa Rica I saw and photographed a number if KINGFISHER and this one is called American Pygmy Kingfisher and it is only 5 ".  It was hard to photograph as I was on a moving boat but I have a video below.  The female has the green ring on her chest.  

If the video does not appear below CLICK HERE.

While we were travelling by bus  in Costa Rica, we passed this shop which appeared to sell OLD things of by gone years.  

Now for STINKY!  I was not going to add a photograph this week for this word as there was absolutely nothing STINKY in Costa Rica.  However recently I had a tour of a OLD Lightship and one place in it was STINKY- The bilges!.  Some other time I will show and tell you about this only Lightship which is the only one of its kind in the world. 

Well I cannot end with the word STINKY so back to the garden in my first hotel in Costa Rica.  This is a long mirror with a REFECTION from part of the garden.
