Welsh Ornithological Society Conference 2012 (Part 2)
Fully sated after a tremendous lunch, and some Red Kite watching I returned to the RSPB Cymru stand on the upper level of Myddfai Community Hall.

Welsh Ornithological Society Conference 2012 (Part One)
I was asked by Daniel Jenkins-Jones (Head of Public Affairs for RSPB Cymru) a couple of weeks back, if I would accompany him to the Welsh Ornithological Societies Annual Conference in Llandovery.

I can fly.....Um......oh dear!
I take one day off and what happens? It would seem that the pesky peregrine chick had a go at flying, or more likely, non-intentional gliding yesterday morning. Luckily this journey to the ground was reported and allowed our rescue team to pick up the chick (licence required; don’t do this at home...

A week of peregrine hide and seek
This week we have been playing hide and seek with Coleen-for-now. Oh, the fun I had on Thursday clambering around on the City Hall. Meeting many of the local gulls and hearing their views. Whilst I thank them for their donations to the RSPB, I would rather they just joined (Do we do a Gull rate?). Whilst...

Come shake your tail feather with the Black Grouse
Join RSPB Cymru for an intimate Date with Nature Not a far cry from some of the more interesting sights seen in Wales’ pubs and bars on a Saturday night, the peculiar mating dance of the Black Grouse is something not to be missed. The head dip, rear up and flailing feather could very well...
