The RFA "Tidespring" A136 is a brand new ship! She was launched in 2015, but not commisioned to service until November 2017 - this was taken early December, so am guessing it was her maiden voyage!!! She was built in Korea and travelled via Japan and Hawaii to get to the UK. Another photographer was alert this day... click here to see his rather more glorious shot!!!

Yes, another little series; this fledgling herring gull ought to have been foraging entirely on its own six months before this was taken - some teenagers just won't go! Here, it is tapping the parent's beak...

Monday's Critters



Scraping the barrel for 'critters'... there was a rare sighting from the Hutch; we don't generally get snow lying down here on the Clyde coastline, but this winter is making an exception. The kids made the most of it and produced quite a magnificent snow critter!!!
