A Park Walk

Now that all our high-profile guests have been and gone, the park is open again and we can park in our normal spot. Since yesterday was a lovely bright sunny evening, though still a little windy, we went for a walk after dinner.

Deer in the parkland

Look carefully - you can just see the little coot chicks climbing out of the nest.

A coot chick. I always want to call them moorhens because of the red beaks, but they must change colour as they get older. For sure it's adult coots feeding them, as per the very short video. I need to find a way of cutting the sound out when it's not suitable for use - C was singing over most of this. I think I'll have to use some birthday money and invest...

Well - everything uploaded today with no problems. I don't know where my two birds in a bush photos ended up last night because they're not showing in my album. The mysteries of cyber-space!!

  1. I can't wait to be able to walk about again. We're heading to the beach this weekend and I was hoping to be able to get some pictures. We have plenty of deer in the backyard year round. They're pretty, but they're very destructive to our attempt at landscaping, so I have mixed feelings about them.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying your videos. It was nice to hear the wind blowing in the background of this one.
