Birds at Beecraigs (and a couple of lambs)

On Sunday, we had a lovely trip to Beecraigs Country Park in West Lothian (you can read about it here). On Sunday I wrote that I hoped to share some of Crafty Green Boyfriend's photos of the birds and here they are.

This dabchick is sitting on a floating nest, there were several of these little grebes on the reservoir

and here are the goldcrest chicks being fed by one of the parents

they were left alone for only short periods between feeds

before the parent came back

We also enjoyed seeing the rare sheep breeds, these little lambs are Hebridean sheep

Hello, the baby birds are all adorable. I love the black sheep too. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

Those goldcrest chicks are something else in terms of cuteness.

Lovely photo's so nice to see the chicks, and the rare black sheep.

All the best Jan
