I rushed out to try and capture this partial rainbow and while I was out, around six o'clock this evening i could hear the wonderful chorus of a raft of eider ducks. We hear them all the time here in winter and spring. If you have four minutes to spare there is a really nice film by a wildlife sound recordist here.
On the beach just there in the second photograph, I used to tell the children 'Listen! The ducks are saying Oooh Heather's here, Oooh there's Andrew and Oooooh Ross has come too!'
I do love living here.
What sounds could you hear at 6pm? City sounds? Traffic? Wildlife? Weather sounds? (There was snow on the hills this morning..silent and beautiful.)
