Grey Fantail as seen from my veranda on the weekend. These delightful little birds catch insects on the wing and very active.

One of the few other species to hunt together is man and dog.
Lindisfarne Castle and Holy Island. The island is tidal, accessible only at low tide. Lindisfarne Castle, the highest point on the island, was built in the 16th-century.
