Check out Hilary's beautiful photography and other Posts of the Week.


In other news, it is herring spawn season again and here is a link that has great photos and commentary.

Last week, I noticed the turquoise milty water where 'the river meets the sea'. Thousands of gulls were feeding frenziedly on herring spawn. Here is one of my photos taken...before the wintry storm and winds blew in!

  1. Wow, Glo, that is an incredible shot of the gulls. Looked like you were right in the middle of the melee!

    1. Thanks Nikki. I took quite a few shots of the gulls, but this one definitely showed how many were everywhere! It was beautiful to see.

  2. The 'Going Nuts' Quigley story had me smiling! I bet all those gulls were making a noise. Flighty xx

    1. Always happy to bring a smile :) I think many of the gulls had their mouths full! LOL ~ Yes, it was quite a sight and quite an earful.

  3. What an incredibly huuuuge amount of gulls!!! Would you care to identify them all individually for us, Glo ;-)

    How I laughed when I saw Quigley especially on the post where he was peeking through the branches at you. He had definitely been talking to his cheeky little friend on my post, what a coincidence :-)

    I also enjoyed your very creative February Scavenger Hunt. Those Sea Lions are beautiful creature!

    1. I'd love to know how many different kinds of gulls there were ;) I'm sure I could find a listing of gulls in our area as I'm not very well versed in recognizing individuals...something to work on! All I know is there were lots! ;)

      I'm glad to know you enjoyed meeting Quigley and yes, it was a lovely coincidence to see his UK cousin on your post.

      Thanks for checking back to see my other entries and also pleased you enjoyed the entertaining sea lions!

  4. Oh now that's just adorable. Is there no end to your creativity? I think not. :)

    I love the gulls shot. I hope you were wearing a wide-brimmed hat. ;)

    1. Hi Hilary ~ so glad you dropped in to read the newspaper article by Quigley. I do enjoy fooling around with creative aspects using photos, poetry etc. and pleased you enjoy my efforts. When I worked in the school system, there was no end of ongoing projects with the children as my muses! Now I depend on nature and blogworld :)

      Good idea about the wide-brimmed hat! I have a hood on my winter jacket that comes in very handy :)

    1. Hi Stranger :) Glad to see you midst the gull bonanza! I haven't felt much like blogging lately...perhaps when the weather is a bit more inviting for photography! Thanks for coming by :)
