Circling in the Thermal

On the way to their winter grounds . . .
. . . suddenly they began circling . . .

. . . not because they had got irritated by the sun . . .

. . . but going to reach higher regions.

    1. Even lovelier a sight it will be when end of February they will return. :)

    1. It's the first time I observed this in our area. Quite fascinating.

  3. Do you know where they're going? so many of our Canadian birds go to Mexico, South America. ...It's so impressive to see them leave and return.

    Your photos are priceless...

    1. Some of those taking the route via Seanhenge very probably will end near the Pyrenees, either in South France or in Pais Vasco. Or they will spend their winter holiday in Andalusia or Tunesia.

      Well, at least insofar as no one would pay any price for my photos, so far. :)

  4. No, no, no... Did you not hear them calling out to each other: "Look! You can see Seanhenge from here!" ?

    I too, feel that I am leaving for the winter grounds of my head, but hopefully I'll still occasionally see Seanhenge from there, even though I may be too deep in winter to say much, while hoping for the Spring.

    Good wishes old lad.

    1. Oh. No, I did not hear them calling that, but it's a lovely thought.

      Also I do like the thought of us, the "fabulous few", offering shelter and a warm fire place to keep eachother's mind warm.

      Now that could be diagnosed as sentimental rubbish. Thus, let's rather hope for spring.

      Thank you very much for your good wishes, Andrew. My good thoughts are with you and your loved ones, too.
