Signs of Birds

I love this sign at Caelaverock WWT (Wildfowl and Wetland Trust) reserve. The signs point to places important for the migrating birds (including Senegal where the ospreys spend their winters and Spitsbergen where the geese spend their summers).

Meanwhile the common sandpiper below added interest to this sign in the grounds of the Friars Carse hotel where we spent the second half of our recent Dumfries and Galloway holiday. (Thanks to Crafty Green Boyfriend for this photo, which when clicked on will appear bigger, giving you a better view of the sandpiper!).

How often do you see Senegal and Spitsbergen in the same sentence?

That's neat - your migration routes sound exotic for a North American!
