In Place Of Menokakkuls - the Northern Explorer Critters Episode

All of you who have been enjoying the weekly giggles here at Wild YAM's place, are also greatly fond of critters - and we saw plenty of them on the Mac Clan trip... so let me unload a few here for you to gawp and 'coo' over...

The birds at the cottage were myriad; not least the common sparrows;
here you see a fledgling still demanding to be fed! (I captured the actual feeding...
You'll need to keep an eye over at TAKE bloggy for that shot &*>)

I spotted no less than four different bee species - but caught only two on camera

This is Millie-dog; she lived three cotts along from our place on Skelbo Street. She was adopted into this furever home by very kind peeps. She is four years old and had received very little training. She was doing very well though and adored the massage Mac1 was giving her - but was also very intrigued by the Fudge and all this 'look at the camera' bizzo!!!

Millie is a RottweiLab.

Note the starling coming in to land... lots of juicy bugs on a cow's back!

Ower here Morag, ah hae som'thin' tae tell ye...

Och Senga, whit are you faffin' aboot noo?

Wheesht... d'ya see ower yonder? Thaur's a wummin pointin' a blummin great eye at us...
d'ya naw hear yon clicking and a clacking o' the thing?


  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh YaYa we missed your posts so much. We stay so busy some days leaving the hotel at 8am returning in time to clean up for supper. We saw so much beauty. Looking forward to seeing what I missed here. Love the critters
    Hugs HiC

  2. Had to laugh at the cow being tagged in both ears making it look like it had pierced ears and wearing yellow earrings. So perfectly even the tags are.
    Thanks for being a friend
