30-days-wild - day 17 - more bats

Another bat count this evening, but at least it was a little less tedious than the last one.

Birding at Bargoed & Cefn Gelligaer

I was out birding again on day 17 of #30DaysWild, once again with Glamorgan Bird Club, this time to Cefn Gelligaer and the Bargoed uplands. And what a wonderful day it was, in spite of the light rain that set in after lunch (though that does mean I don’t have a lot of photos). 227 more words

Spent the evening watching a wall.  At least, that’s how it seemed.
