Ettrick Bay Gulls

The Isle of Bute might be my favourite place on earth, and Ettrick Bay is my favourite beach there.  The views of Arran are spectacular (when the clouds cooperate), and there is always wildlife about. I am looking forward to warmer weather and lots of time spent staring at the sea.


This young female blackbird has been visiting our window lately.  She’s fairly calm and doesn’t seem too bothered by humans.  She’ll eat with us standing a couple of feet away.  She also doesn’t seem to mind having a camera shoved in her face.


I met this fellow outside of a restaurant in Edinburgh.  He was totally fearless and had no problem with my getting up close and personal with my camera.  He must not have thought I’d take away his food.
