Been out

Back in Wales, and out and about most days, which is why blogging has taken a back seat.

Anyway, here's a few pics taken so far.


He's glad we're back here. He gets to play with his friends, his brother, and have some freedom to run around in the fields.

A visit to RSPB Ynys-hir in search of a Wood Warbler, eventually gave me this poor shot.

I'd heard five, but they were a nightmare to see.

A bold juvenile Robin was very showy.

 No wonder they are such favourites.

Another bird with a red breast:

A male Stonechat.

Loggerheads Country Park is always worth a visit; especially this time of the year.
It's home to Dippers, Grey Wagtails,

and plenty of other woodland birds; but I'd come to see the wonderful display of Ramsons.

 The picture doesn't do it justice really. And the smell in the morning air is spectacular.

Another place to show in this post is from South Stack, on Anglesey.  

Famed for its sea birds and Chough, it also puts on a great show of wild flowers.

Sea Campion.

Last place for now, was a visit to Lake Vyrnwy.

Not the best of roads to get there on, especially over the mountain, but some great birds to see once you get there.

Great Spotted Woodpecker


and finally a bird I was hoping to find,

Pied Flycatcher.

Have a good weekend.


  1. WOW A Pied Flycatcher. Now that is special. I thought you might be in your beloved Wales adn ou certainly are getting out and about with Whiskey. That image of him is gorgeous. All your photographs are lovely Keith and I especially love the Woodpecker as they I still have not seen one her as yet. they have now been here about 5 years and are breeding but as yet now many of them. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Some lovely areas to visit there Keith.
    Brilliant shot of the GSW.

  3. Your work is NAT-GEO worthy! Enjoy your time there; Whiskey is looking grand!

  4. You have been busy. The woodpecker is perfect.

  5. Lovely images. Such beauty.

  6. Thank you Margaret. Hope you get to see a Woodpecker soon, they are lovely birds.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend too.

    John thank you. There are so many great places to visit here. I get spoilt for choice.

    Sondra, thank you. Very kind of you. :-)

    Thanks Adrian. The woodpecker was a real poser.

  9. Thanks Findlay, he was a great little chap. Very friendly.

    Thanks Peter, it's quite strong :-)

  10. Lovely set of images Keith. Especially the Grey Wag and the Great Spot. I have never seen Pied Flycatcher.

  11. Lovely set of pictures Keith, I love the Ramsons both sight and smell of them, they are as spectacular as the Bluebells, there is a road here where the Ramsons line each side of the road and it looks like the road is lined with snow.

  12. Thanks Roy. I think Pied Flycatchers are mostly found in the west. Good numbers in places here.

    Thank you Linda. They are a lovely sight to see.
