Empty at the Pond..

The Pond has been deadly quiet.. almost no once has come around.. but I did get one silhouette of the small heron early morning...

And then I saw the turtle on land and close by!

One of the Moorhen chicks had to check him out..

I looked across the pond and saw three more!..

So now we know of 4 turtles and I still think we have a soft shelled one that I haven't seen again yet..

look how big the Moorhen babies are !

Remember when their little "wings" had no feathers at all on them?!

Well...That's all that's going on at the pond these days..

Thanks for keeping my birds appetite satiated!

I went for a walk this morning and saw herons and egret. Those herons can swallow huge fish. Unbelievable.

We had to put a net over our pond because one found us last week.

I have to admit, I am a bit envious of your pond. It looks so tranquil. And the variety of life in and around has to fun to watch. Especially when the little ones grow and learn. (At least the turtle didn't take a nip out of the moorhen)
Just got in from the gym. Am trying to get a heads up since I will be heading to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival next weekend. There are always good muchies to be had around the international showcase. I tip a glass to you my dear. Have a nice week. Vala3

Pat, that first photo - Early Morn - is an absolute stunner. And I'm loving your turtles. Stephen Fry had some baby ones on his doc series tonight. They were adorable.
