Swan and Duck photos

 My Grandson Adam  who is soon to be 10 years of age, feeding the Swans, Geese and Ducks in Queen Mary’s Gardens in Belfast. They are only a five minute drive from my house.

This was at the start of November and it was a beautiful sunny day.

The birds will come right up to you to get feed but the swans do not get out of the water very often, they must feel safe in it.

These gardens are formed from the lower section of the former Waterworks, which was made a public park after its use as a source of water for the city.

There are only three male swans two of which are in the last photo.

In photo number six i live at the bottom of the hill better known as the Cave Hill and we over look the whole of Belfast.

If you click the photos they will open and look better.
