Laugharne became the home for Swansea's Dylan Thomas. Today was one of those glorious January days: patches of sunshine, mildish air, and clear views over Carmarthen Bay to St Ishmaels and Gower beyond. There were oystercatchers and curlew in profusion.
Last week the 'scrapes' in the Llanelli Wetlands Centre on the edge of the Loughor estuary was frozen. There were small patches of water left, and waterfowl were jostling for position. Here are some swans approaching for a frozen landing. Notice snow-bound Gower in the background.
