We had heard that toads were out and about in Burry Port ... but we came face to face with a couple on a path in Pembrey Country Park. After a quick dash they took cover in a shallow hole.

Hen Harrier at Oxwich

The waterbirds on Oxwich marsh suddenly lifted off ... they had clearly spotted the hen harrier that was in the area.

Paul Tyrrel caught a much better photograph from the same hide yesterday.

Snipe at Oxwich

We visited the new bird hide overlooking Oxwich marsh on Gower and this snipe obligingly rested before us.
