No, don't get too excited all the birds in the title were captive ones.
While over in Northern Ireland visiting Majella's mum we decided to head up to Strangford Lough and the WWT reserve Castle Espie.We have never been before so no idea what to expect.
The first part of the reserve you walk through is the captive breeding section with an array of different ducks and geese.
Red breasted geese.
Black Headed Gulls
Black tailed Godwits
Lesser Black Backed Gull
If you are ever in or around the Belfast area it is definately worth a visit to WWT Castle Espie and the surrounding area of Strangford Lough.
Thanks again for reading and looking at my photos and apologies for posting more photos in one blog than usual.
