Another post

Had some bother with the computer the last few days. Downloaded some stuff, wasn't happy with it, so decided to do a system restore. Oooops! Computer decided it wouldn't play fair, and sent me all sorts of silly error messages. Enough to drive a man to drink.
I persevered, and got it sorted; hopefully. Then I decided it would be best to back up all my files/pictures. I do a back up every couple of months usually, so it was about due.
I decided I'd do the whole lot again though.
Not a quick job.

Anyway, apart from all that, and a few other problems around the house and family crap, I'm almost there.
I was sorting through some un-edited pictures going back to June, so I thought I'd use them for this post, before they went off.

If ya got this far, then ya deserve a couple of pictures.

A nice little plant I haven't got round to ID'ing yet. Growing on the shore at Cley, in June.

This one I have got an ID for; Sea Campion, growing on the same shore.

A juvenile Avocet

A protective adult Avocet, fending off a Shelduck.

An even more protective Avocet, chasing off a Marsh Harrier.


and last one

Swallow. Hopefully these have all had a safe journey back to Africa by now.


Finally, I'm going to plug a young mans blog. His name is Findlay Wilde, and he's 11 years old. He had some music homework from school to do, and decided on doing this.

Remember his name; we'll be hearing a a lot more from this young man in the future.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Back home

A couple of birds to start with

Meadow Pipit


A couple of days before I left Wales, I visited somewhere I'd not been to before; Borth-Y-Gest. A small village, just south of Porthmadog. The coastal path through the sand dunes, and steps down to the beach, reveals some stunning scenery. Lots of little sandy coves. A truly beautiful area, and one worth visiting again.

It certainly got my heart pumping climbing some of the steps and dunes; but well worth it.

Enjoy your weekend.
