A safe haven for the birds again. A big thank you to Fort Ports Authority who have done a great job of clearing the abandoned fishing lines that littered the Jetty.

Cool pic, Craig, what's the story behind the statue? I thought it was a real person on first glance!
It is an Antony Gormley Statue. It is one of 6 which where displayed along the Water of Leith. Only 2 remain in situ the others are in storage as they were too expensive to maintain.
That's good news😊 I can even see they've earned a huge Oscar for their achievement, the grateful birds are ready to hand out the award😉😀
:-) brilliant spring_ii I love it!
Thanks😀 I know how important it is and I admire how you care about birds and nature. I live in the valley of the river Barycz, very close to beautiful Milicz Ponds, which is a real bird paradise. There are so many species to watch! The only reason I don't take pictures of them is that I'm terrible at it😉
You just need to practice! A fast shutter speed around 1/800 is a good starting point!
Great capture, Craig, and a great outcome. Hopefully it stays safe for a long time :-)
I think it was a build up over years, however they shouldn't be fishing so close to the jetty I may have to report anyone else I see.
