A few from Wales

But first, the update on the feeders at Caldecotte Lake, can be found here.



But back to Wales.




What better way to start a day.



Wales has a lot of things, amongst them,


 lots of sheep.



It also has lots of great birds.




This Turnstone was on a very windy beach at Newborough, Anglesey.



And lots of mountains.




These provide the backdrop at RSPB Conwy, a fantastic reserve.



Enjoy your day, whatever you are doing.


Me? I'm still up to my neck in bureaucratic paperwork. Good for the heart.

  1. You did it again!
    Took my breath away when I saw the image of the mountains, took me back to when I climbed Snowdon, many beautiful memories came flooding back...

  2. Thanks Gemel. There certainly is some spectacular scenery in Wales.
    And congratulations on climbing Snowdon; something I'd love to do, if the heart doesn't give out first lol

  4. A great sunset and the Turnstone, brilliant piece of work. It's hard to find, because they are well camouflaged.

  7. Thanks Laura, the scenery there is amazing.

    Thank you Bob. The Turnstone certainly blend into that stony beach.

    A long way to go for a sunrise Trevor; but worth it lol
    I think the sheep always look worried when they see people lol

    Thanks Adrian. Yea, let the train take the strain. Good idea. :-)

  8. Hi there - great shot of the Turnstone. And glad to see that Welsh scenery has not been completely eroded in the decades since I last saw it! I feel a visit coming on - shame it's so, so far!

  13. Thanks Gary. I've a load more to get through yet lol

    Thanks Theresa. I'm still at it lol

    Thank you Grace. Yea, sheep everywhere. The Turnstones do have a habit of turning stones, so I guess that's where the name comes from.

  14. What wonderful shots - and that last one is just magical!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Lovely shots! Glad you were able to come to an amicable agreement, with the feeders!
    Can you imagine the stick hole the animals (they aren't humans) live in that left the picnic table in such a state. I can't! We know who the real vermin are. Something like that makes my blood boil. It happens over here too! These idiots should be put in a special place and left to fend for themselves. There is no excuse for it!

  16. Ladyfi, thank you. :-)

    Thanks Robin.
    It was a good result with the feeders for now.
    It's a shame such mindless vandals exist.

  17. Love your sunrise/sunset. Very beautiful. All your images are just great but the first just caught my eye with those beautiful colors.

  18. Beautiful places to visit Keith.. and just down the road from me... Did you get to South Stack on Anglesey while you were there?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Beautiful scenery and the bird is pretty too. Fantastic photos.

  20. Thank you Horst. The sunrise that morning was unbelievable. The colour was blood red for a few precious minutes, and I managed quite a few pictures and video.

    Andrew, it is a stunning place isn't it. Didn't get to South Stack this time; maybe next. We spent most of the day around Newborough beach and Warren.

    Thanks Eileen. The birds are quite difficult to pick out on a stony beach. Such good camouflage.

  32. I hope the red on the sheeps back is a way of telling something has been taken care of.

    The scenery is beautiful.

  33. Thanks Carol.
    Yea, the red is a way for the farmers to tell their sheep from any others.
