Painted Lady

A Painted Lady ,Mewslade valley

Red Kite down light

 Taking a slow drive along Llanridian marsh hoping to catch up with the Marsh Harrier that my father got to see earlier . A raptor approached along the marsh , it was hard to see directly down light even as it flew past close the car , no good photo opportunity arose
The fork tail will always give away a Kite though,
When in Wales , Red  Kites are always a target species

Llanelli WWT

Id traveled from west Ireland by car and ferry to my homeland in Wales, the sun was out and I was approaching  Swansea west when we recieved a text from my father
 : Meet me in Llanelli wetland centre :
A delightful place built for wildlife and people to share. Plenty of gadwall , Grey herons and Dragonflies were on view from the hides
A large flock of Greylag Geese were out on the marsh ,viewable from the look out tower

The hides and viewing areas (indoor and out) were quite an experience.

This place is loaded with information and education and a very attractive place for the children to indulge in  their introduction to wildlife
