Today on the Loch.

As I said in my main journal we were out walking today by the side of the loch where we live. I was a lovely day and all was quiet on the water. There were black and white tufted ducks and the one in the centre is a Great Crested Grebe in winter plumage which is nearly all white but in the summer they are like a different species altogether.

Our geese that winter here spend their nights on the loch where they are safe from their predators like foxes. The loch will get very busy during the winter months as many duck and geese spend their winters here on our loch providing it does not completely freeze over. Time to go and feed hubby. Love Joan.


  1. How beautiful it must be walking around there. It's cloudy and cool here today. Just a few more hours and I can leave for the camper. 'On Ya' - ma

  2. It looks so beautiful there Joan and such a haven for wildlife. I wish you could have seen the Red Kite that flew over my house yesterday afternoon. It was flying really low and I could see the red feathers where the sun was shining on it. :o)

    Love Sandra xxxx
