A new era dawns

A new era dawns. Today marked my first visit to Goldcliff Lagoons since the sad death of  Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday. She was a great and very respected monarch throughout the world.  Her passing marked the end of the modern Elizabethan era and the dawn of a new one. King Charles III has now ascended to the throne - "God save the King". The new era will be called the Carolean age under King Charles III. I thought his first speech was very touching and I believe he will be a great King like his mother. We also now have a new Prince of Wales with Prince William taking on his father's previous titles.  Every time I now take picture of the second Severn crossing - namely the Prince of Wales bridge there will be a different face that now pops up in my head. The Prince of Wales Bridge I've had a very stressful and busy week myself and I was in real need of some bird therapy today for a few hours to take my mind off things.

And along came an Otter

Had another evening sat in my hide waiting for the Kingfishers. Was graced with several visits but no fishing tonight. They seemed quite territorial and skittish.

Whilst packing up my kit was amazed to see an Otter a short distance away up river oblivious to me busy fishing and porpoising.

Must admit the light was fading and I have much to learn with low light camera settings but did the best I could. Great experience and am privileged to enjoy the experience.
