Whitehaven harbour has a number of quays, which have names including Sugar Tongue – a reference to the cargo which was unloaded there in times past. Now the harbour is used for fishing and leisure.
My photo was taken with my phone on a bright day in October. There is a lot to look at. In the foreground is a juvenile gull and a sculpture C2C marking the start of the Coast to Coast cycle route. The wavy line and the crow’s nest were part of a regeneration scheme for the harbour. In the background older buildings around the harbour are visible. It was a perfect day for reflections. I was there to look at the swans.
These photos were taken on the same day as the oak tree in the previous post. Most of the birds are water birds on or near Derwentwater. However I cannot remember visiting the area without seeing lots of robins. I have pictures of two, but one of them is rather camouflaged. Swans are notorious for putting their heads under the water just as the shutter opens! There were lots of ducks and geese. We saw geese swimming, flying and walking.
