Greystones Blackbirds (Lon Dubh)

November 15, 2017 It was another sunny start, cooler again at 3 degrees in the seaside town of Greystones, Ireland. We have resident blackbirds in the garden in our hedge. They share the space with a Robin family. I really love the bright yellow of that beak the male bird has and the portly brown […]

Greystones Birds (Robins or Spideóg)

Monday 13 November It is a still morning, about 12 degrees Celsius and the birds were feeding in groups this morning. It was like one happy family with Robins, Sparrows and Tits feeding together. There was even a young Magpie in the mix. This time of year with Robins featuring in Christmas Ads and cards, […]

Greystones Birds and things…

11 November 2017 The back garden bird feeding station is most popular because it is in a quiet spot and close to all of the trees/shrubs so birds hop in and out to feed. Birds need to consume between 25 and 50% of their body weight each day. In Winter, when foraging time is limited […]

Lightening Patterns

Life evolves with the changing seasons.   Winter snaps the air. It cuts through November, nibbles at daylight douses it with night.   I gaze at an agitated sea beneath a twisted sky, the day thick with thunder.   I am anxious   and I am once again a little girl sheltering under a tree, […]

Winter Weaves

Silver threads span convex on my windowpane. A network of gossamer bridges link wind-blown petals to barren thorny branches, fallen leaves to naked trees and marry flies to bumble bees.   Perfectly formed labyrinths designed to confuse, tangle tender prey stun them to submission. Wrapped in dainty threads, an invisible world is woven bundling my […]
