Just realised I put the wrong date in on this post so it’s a little later in the day than usual – hope you all missed it!
Following the lakeside on my walk this week at The Waterside – Felindre, where we also enjoyed Welsh Valley Alpacas, we spotted some of the other fauna to be found there, namely a host of little tadpoles and fish.
From the waterside we climbed up into the woods where we enjoyed the bluebells still covering the sun-dappled glades and the alley-ways of trees. The carpet of needles was soft underfoot and, away from the crowd of people visiting the alpacas, the peace of the woodland and the valley was very soothing.
Descending again to the valley bottom, we clambered over fallen trees and roots to explore the stream that feeds the former reservoir. On returning to the green footpath we found that the mud we had diligently avoided was in fact dry and almost solid with all the recent warm weather.
