My walk this week was at Golden Grove or Gelli Aur as we call it in Wales. It was particularly enjoyable because the park has been closed for the last five years or so and it was wonderful to be able to wander round it again.
Although the arboretum is only accessible if you pay, the rest of the park, even without being able to walk the circuit through the arboretum and the deer enclosure, it is still a beautiful place to visit. The cafe has opened again too and is serving some very nice home made food.
I only had my phone with me for photography and recording purposes and while I prefer my DSLR camera, my phone is a very useful back up which I always have with me.

I didn’t attempt to record enough with my iPhone to create a soundscape for the place as without wind protection, it is prone to create rumble. However, the birdsong I caught in the area most obviously a grove, was a very enjoyable reminder that Spring is here.
