Wales for a start

Last weekend, I, my mate Paul Riddle, and a our good  mate Adey went on our annual trip to Wales for the weekend to meet up with Paul's good friend Mike to photograph mainly Pied Flycatchers and Redstarts.
The area we go to is so remote and tranquil, and the habitat is perfect for these two species; there are lots more to see.... we had up to 4 Cuckoo's, Spotted Flycatcher, Wood Warbler, and even a day flying Tawny Owl! plus lots of other common stuff, and there were not many times when you looked up to the sky there wasn't either Raven, Buzzard or Red Kite drifting through......though too distant for any images!

This is my second time here, and this place is just amazing! ..... it's a place where you could quite easily spend a week, never mind a weekend!!

Hopefully we will be back next year! I think we all had a great time, got lots of images, had a few beers and most importantly...... a great laugh with good company!
