Still in Wales,
and hands are full with 3 little puppies.
Here's a couple of them.
The weather has been more like winter, than summer, and I've only managed a couple of outings so far.
I did get to Lake Vyrnwy on one day, in the hope of seeing a Wood Warbler.
While I was there, there were good numbers of Pied Flycatchers too.
Not the best of pictures from the visit, but great birds to see.
Another day I managed a visit to RSPB Conwy; always a favourite place to visit when I'm here. I focused mainly on plants while I was here.
A Marsh Orchid, I think. Either way, my first orchid of the year.
They have a small 'tended garden' there too, and some lovely Aquilegia plants, amongst others.
and this one
The first time I've seen a double flowered one.
Around the cottage, the trees are now green, and a few Bluebells in flower.
A lot of these about too, growing in the uncut grass.
The moth trap has had a couple of outings, on the odd evenings we've had no rain.
Undoubtedly though, the real star finds so far, (apart from an overhead Nightjar one night; but sadly no pictures) was this Tawny Owl.
A BIG surprise one morning was the sight of these two little fluffballs.
It's been great to see how much they've grown over the last few days.
A couple of days later, after some heavy rain.
All the time one of the adult birds are never far away in the tree.
But the little starlets from yesterday morning, 30th May
A bit heavy on the pictures in this post, sorry about that, but I hope you find something that you enjoyed.
Enjoy your day.
