Things are looking up.

Another fine Spring day in uptown Pontypool and things are looking up. A quick hour around the local quarry and bingo my first free flying butterflies of the year in terms of a peacock and small tortoiseshell. A couple of kestrel in the quarry were very vocal and a roosting tawny owl posed for some photography. This owl has roosted in the same tree for at least the last three years!

  1. You are well ahead of us over on the Llyn Peninsular: I have only seen butterflies in the past two days - so quick moving that I couldn't identify either of them.

    Great luck seeing the Tawny owl.
