Birdlife and nature shots this morning, Glasgow, Scotland


(Above is a capture of  'my' Little Grebe which has valiantly stayed on her nest notwithstanding near monsoon type rainfall. A strange time of year to nest. The green algae usually appears at this time of year and seems to be harmless.)

Over the past week or so we have experienced very heavy and persistent rain, a weather pattern which is predicted to continue for the next few days. For peak summer time these conditions are not ideal but the combination of warmth and moisture do provide for some useful conditions for photography.

Here is a portfolio of images from my walk to and around Rouken Glen Country Park, Glasgow this morning.

First sign of maturing blackberries. Can be used in pies and for making jam.


Raindrops and flowers


Moisture and warmth combine to provide an explosion of horse mushrooms on the roadside.


Little Grebe fishing for lunch.
