I have to head back to England next week, for what could be an awkward meeting with officialdom, (no, I'm not going inside ...... well, I don't think so); so here's a few from this stay in Wales.
An update on the Peregrine chick. On Thursday, 12th June, it was 7 days since my last visit, and it has grown SO much!
A couple of views next.
A place on Anglesey called Breakwater Country Park, has some interesting old heritage and stuff, but the coastal walk is the thing for me. If you walk far enough, you'll be in Holyhead, where the ferries go to and fro to Ireland.
But the walk itself yields some great wildlife.
Welsh Ponies roam alongside the coastal path,
and it's the best place I've found to see Chough.
Plenty of wildflowers too.
Not sure what Orchid this is. I'm crap with a lot of ID's, and these are near the top of my list. I thought at first a Southern Marsh Orchid, but my books tell me they don't grow in Anglesey. So I'll call it an 'Orchid' for now.
The bird life here in Wales, provides an amazing variety.
Wheatear (shows how it got its 'old name' of 'white arse'. True, that is.)
and before you nod off after that lot, one more of a couple of birds that had me wondering at first. Not a perfect shot, they were a long way off; but I soon decided they were a couple of leucistic Canada Geese.
Have a good weekend.
