A quick view of petebfrance's recent activity.

    Hi Ron.
    Thank-you for commenting (and voting). The picture was taken at the edge of a boatyard on the bend of the river (Goyen in Brittany) upstream of the fishing port. Old wooden boats when they are past repair are run aground and left to decay. There are a number of them there, and this one was probably a small private fishing boat rather than one of the big guys. On that part of the river, away from the town, there's a sandbank where the sea-birds gather, and kingfishers use the higher parts of some of the wrecks as look-out posts. I saw one flashing past earlier, and that's what drew me to where the photo was taken.
    A pleasant spot when the traffic over the bridge dies down.

    Quote:Great photograph, I saw my first one on my birdtable today. Grin

    I first saw one in the garden about two years ago. A couple have started appearing more regularly over the last year. According to my book they don't come this far west in Brittany, so it looks like they are moving in!

  • Singing Robin - again

    Thanks, Chris, I'm never sure if it's just me messing things up.
    Yes, Robins are lovely. We don't have a large garden but there seems to be one that 'owns' each end.

    Quote:That's brightened my day 😆. .....seems sad that she's alone 😕

    Thank-you. She wasn't actually alone, though, so need to be sadSmile The (dreamy) hazy effect is from using the bloom filter in Photoscape - I'm rather pleased with it.
