Nothing special for UL no.200,
just a hungry Robin and a Chaffinch sharing some crumbs
at the cafe of Gleanveagh Castle in Glenveagh National Park.

Glenveagh (Irish:Gleann Bheatha) — covering 11 hectares
of hillside above Glenveagh Castle on the shore of
Lough Veagh (Irish:Loch Ghleann Bheatha), some 20 km
from Gweedore in County Donegal, Ireland — forms the
heart of the Glenveagh National Park (Irish:Páirc
Naisiúnta Gleann Bheatha). The network of mainly
informal gardens displays a multitude of exotic and
delicate plants from as far afield as Chile, Madeira
and Tasmania, all sheltered by windbreaks of pine trees
and ornamental rhododendrons.

Gleann Bheatha translates into English as "Glen of the Birches".

The estate was established by John Adair who was
infamous for evicting 244 of his tenants and clearing
the land so they would not spoil his view of the landscape.

The gardens and castle were presented to the Irish
nation in 1981 by Henry P. McIlhenny of Philadelphia
who had purchased the estate in 1937.

The park now has the largest herd of Red Deer in
Ireland and Golden Eagle, formerly extinct in Ireland,
were reintroduced into the park in 2000.

Hi Thor,

Nice to see a posting of you again,see that you have visited Ireland,a funny composition with a nice note,hope you have seen as well the red deer appearing in the park.


Hi Thorsten
Very unusual presentation. I like the idea. All shots are nice and sharp but of course the most important thing here is the moment.
Good job
Best wishes

Das sind zwei unserer scheuesten Vögel - und Du hast sie beim Stibitzen erwischt, unglaublich, das hätte ich nie für möglich gehalten. Aber vielleicht sind die Irischen Vertreter dieser Gattungen einfach anders erzogen ;-) Bei mir im Garten trauen sie sich nicht mal so einfach ans Vogelhaus - und hier ... Klasse, gefällt mir sehr.
Du bist ja auch viel unterwegs. Leider hatte ich dieses Jahr geschäftlich so viel um die Ohren und habe erst im Dezember Sommerurlaub.
Es geht nach Ägypten, da freuen wir uns schon drauf!
Viele Grüße

Hello Thor
I didn't know you were at TN too!
I love this series: it tells a lively story!
Great colours and details,
And my heartiest congratulations on your 200th!

Cute birds in action. Should have left a little more to feed on.
200 pictures, eh! At the pace I am going here lately, It'll take me several years to get that far....
