And so to West Wales.

It CHUCKED it down last night but was fine by the time I passed Cardiff.

I stopped at the National Wetlands centre at Llanelli. Disappointing or what!!!!!

A cute collection duck and a heron for you.

I then stopped at

St Mary, Kidwelly

then on to Dinefwr Park near Carmarthen.

I thought this was a juvenile Robin but it is greyer and look at that tail!!! A Redstart!! I saw him flitting about later!

Some deer.

And some Red Kites. WHY is it you never have your big lens when you want it?

Wonderful pictures Pete. Looks like a lovely place.

Well, you might not have had the lens you wanted, but they're good shots anyway - just to see a Red Kite would be a bonus for me!

A Redstart - now that was jammy!

Do tell why the Wetlands Centre was disappointing?

You might have brought some decent weather with you. More like April, slightly warmer I suppose. Got a lot more rain to come by the sounds of it and a bit breezy. I guess Skomer is out!

hi jan.

its not cold, at least the rain so far has been in short sharp bursts!

Llanelli? very few wild birds !!

Wetlands are never great in summer. Thank goodness the churches don't disappoint.

Just caught up with your (latest ;) )
holiday posts, seems you are having a great time with lots of lovely old churches and lots of beautiful stained glass. Well done on the Redstart and the Red Kite and a lovely photo of the Whitethroat also.
