North Wales - May 26th 2013

Fantastic views from the cottage!


Staying at a very pleasant and remote cottage near the hamlet of Nebo in the hills above the Conwy valley!



A nice garden tick - one of three Wheatear!


Plenty of Ravens around


Meeting the neighbours!



A very pleasant day spent in the "honeypot" town of Betws-y-Coed amongst the sunny bank holiday weekend crowds. Just the way I like it - not! However, it was still possible to do some birding!

I miss Wales.

Great shots of the Goosander Kevin.
What a lot of chicks she's got.

You picked a nice week-end Kevin. I shall be uo that way myself in a couple of weeks.

Cheers Keith - she was totally unphased by the crowds splashing in the water.

Nice pics, we go to North Wales every year as my husband has family up there, great place for wildlife. Your job I assume is shift work and I think the good thing about shifts is that you can get out into the countryside when everyone else is at work! I am a palliative care nurse and I actually like shift!....well, not nights! Good pictures again though.

Cheers Goosey. Yes I work shifts and enjoy having time off during the week as not so busy. North Wales is great with excellent wildlife. More to follow!
