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.

Caught between a Rock Thrush and a hard place

I enjoyed my morning yesterday photographing the Rock Thrush in a very exposed windy quarry in Pwll Du.

The Thrush was often searching for suitable cover out of the wind. It did not seem to be bothered by the twitchers with big camera lenses and scopes.

It only got excited when a Wheater turned up and tried to eat some food from where it was feeding.
