The Catton Barn Owl

TheTamshee: & family had a leisurely stay at the Potter's in Catton. near Allendale. Fine festive fare and no dishes to wash. Thanks to Ali & Marzie for the hospitality. The added bonus was spotting the Barn Owl perched on the stone dike a mile or so outside the village.

Eurasian Sparrowhawk

"Such glance did Falcon never dart, When stooping on his prey" Marmion
TheTamshee: is always on the look out for birds of prey; while travelling on the B6359 Bowden to Melrose back road we spotted the secretive Sparrowhawk in the sparse hedgerow. The female bird was unconcerned, allowing me to reverse alongside for a close up view. See this Site for some fun birds in the bath, including the sparrowhawk. Copyright Dave Culley

Grey Heron In Flight

TheTamshee: enjoys the walk on the bank of the river Ettrick, but the real fun begins when you spot the grey heron. Trying to get close up video footage is a challenge i've yet to master.

Snowmen @ Inchgarth

TheTamshee says: the kids got busy sculpturing their first snowmen of this festive season. Mr Frosty & Mr Snow were looking rather pleased with themselves the next morning.

JoLoMo Exhibition

Low Tide at The Harbour Crail: Copyright Jolomo
TheTamshee: would not normally be drawn to the delights of Dundee but i would make an exception for this: JoLoMo "East West Light 11" exhibitions @ Queens Gallery 5th - 24th Dec. Having previously visited the "On the Edge of Buchan 2" exhibition @ Duff House Banff; I can appreciate this great artists talent.
