Weather wise today was not a great day as it rained all day. A trip over to Tring Reservoirs and College Lake resulted in a few interesting birds on Startops Reservoir. A Little Egret, 2 juvenile Black Tailed Godwits and a Garganey.
Caldey Island is owned and run by the Reformed Order of Cistercian monks, who live a simple life farming the island. There are regular boat trips from Tenby. I like visiting Islands and I have to say I had never heard of this Island before. When we arrived there was a monk welcoming people to the Island.
31/7/2013 We started the day by visiting South Stack where we saw the resident Chough. Two adults and a juvenile where feeding in a horse field across the road from the RSPB visitor centre. We also visited and had the tour of the South Stack lighthouse. It rained for most of the rest of the day so we travelled down to Pembrokeshire stopping briefly at Ynys-hir RSPB where the BBC nature programme Springwatch was based. We stayed the night at the Trewern Arms in Nevern.
