Visit to a Fishing Village for Good Fences

Last year, hubby and I visited a little fishing village where we were hoping to see the fishermen mending their nets, and perhaps the arrival of the fishing boats, when sea birds gather for the pickings.
We saw many seagulls, only one plover, but large gatherings of Cormorants near the water's edge. I was so fascinated by everything we saw that I also took photos of  the nets and traps as well.

Mr. Goat and Fence

Many moons ago, or so it seems, I took these goat photos, and completely forgot the goat was behind a fence, so fortunatly, I now have a fence post to share for Good Fences. 


















I am linking up with Good Fences today and on Saturday, with Saturdays Critters. My thanks to Theresa and Eileen for hosting these wonderful memes.

Crests, Tufts, and More!

The Crested Tit is a bird I see often at the feeders, They like the wallnut cake I share with them, and also love the peanuts.




The Crested tit has a well visible crest, and black and white head markings, in all plumages, ages, and sexes, however the crest is smaller on juveniles.



These plants are weeds growing on the farm. I think they are Bindweed and the flowers are very pretty.



The tubuler flowers remind me of Morning Glory and are just as invasive.



The Doronicum flowers with their bright yellow heads brighten a dark place in my garden.



The Pampas-grass forms a fence behind some of our grazing sheep.



The exeptionally bushy tufts on this squirrel made me smile!:)



He had a gorgeous bushy tail to match the tufts, and also his coat was lighter in colour from the ones I had seen previously



He must have been just passing though, as I haven't seen him at any time since.



One last shot before he leapt off the bird table, leaving a lasting impression.



The Crested Tit's are mainly insectivorous, but whenever there is wallnut cake, they finish it in no time.



It's a nice bird to see at the feeders, but I love hearing their purring or bubbling trill, and hear it long before they come into sight.

Veterinarian Visit for Good Fences.

On a visit to a nearby stable last year, we were just in time to see the Vet cleaning Prince's teeth. It's not the first time it's been done,  so Prince was fairly relaxed throughout the whole procedure.


Good boy!!!
 

Ok! It's time you took that thing out of my mouth now!
 

Sweet Molly had already had her teeth cleaned before we arrived.
