Looking back - February pictures and memories

Hello just a few pics for the record - memories of days out and times shared - precious times - time to reflect on life and how short it is - every moment to be treasured.

We spent a few days in a village called Mydroilyn near Newquay  Wales  in a cottage on a farm it was quite isolated but great for walking and bird watching - the birds were amazing and quite obliging for the camera - fabulous




A great spotted woodpecker just outside the lounge window - and below a nuthatch
 there were lots of other birds - blue tits  - this one was trying Blueys breakfast cereal !!

  great tits and a coal tit and two jays - pictured below

A favourite of mine the jackdaw - full of character and fearless with bright blue eyes


A 4 mile walk on the second day proved to be a success - the scenery was stunning even though the paths were wet and very muddy - we did a circular  from Aberaeron  to  Aberarth - walking alongside the River Aeron and up through Panteg Woods - I took my header shot of the Mandarin duck as we walked upstream and the pic below is looking back down onto Aberaeron
and the next shot is looking down from the top of the hill down to Aberarth - shame about the solar panels !!
The skies were hazy - with a light breeze and there were a great many red kites wheeling around but I didn't get a good shot - but they were fantastic to see - 

The next day we went to Llanerchaeron  a National Trust property approximately 4 miles inland from Aberaeron we walked in the woods and here are the captures of the spring flowers 

we took the river walk



Nature at its best

Bluey came too !

The Llanerchaeron cat - sitting in the walled garden looking very contented

 I have ended with a few pics of places visited - firstly Cwmtudu beach 
and a shot taken in Aberaeron
Posting also this week to Our World Tuesday
