A filler

A quick post to fill the gap, until I can catch up.

Back from Wales now, (for the time being), but here's a few shots taken before I went.
A fairly local reserve, Summer Leys, in Northants, is/was playing host to a Great White Egret.

A really nice looking bird.

And of course a Little Egret was present ........

and a Grey Heron.

One of the regular visitors to my garden, is a bunch of Blue Tits.
Caught this one on some Teasel that is growing well, and supplying food for the Goldfinches, and any other birds that attempt to extract the seed from the prickly heads.

Back in Wales for the next lot, and these are a few taken in the days before I left.

Common Whitebeam.

Providing some food for the local bird population.

Lots of Rowan growing around too, and nooks and crannies in the walls full of insects.

Curlew, having a stretch.


Literally hundreds of these around the coastal areas. This one was at Conwy.


Searching for insects amongst the bark of the conifers.

Bank Vole.

Always a soft spot for these little creatures.

A mushroom that I don't know the name of; but it does remind me of something.

And finally, a trip to Harlech and its beach before I came back to England.
A lousy windy day, but such a beautiful beach.

Have a good week.

Cyfarchion o Gymru

Yes, I'm here again.

At the risk of sounding like a holiday postcard, I really am having a wonderful time.
And the scenery and bird life is as good as ever.

A few pictures and short videos ....................
