Enjoying being Home. Island Living

Autumn Colour

The World Traveler enjoying being home for the week.

The Light.
clouds opened, small patches of light moved across the landscape.


New wire bird made while out walking. Found some old fence wire on the ground.
No tools just used my hands and stuck in a post. Sort of looks like a Bee-eater.
A few wire birds can be seen around Fair Isle now. Good fun.
