Forest Bathing in the Woods of Gwent

  A beautiful Bluebell Wood. This spring I have focused my photography on new areas beyond my usual haunt of Goldcliff Lagoons and have been exploring several wonderful local woods. Life for me is busy at the moment and at times the stresses and strains of life have left me in a real need of opportunities to get outdoors with nature. I am fortunate to have some great woods on my doorstep where I can spend some time "Forest Bathing" to detox and destress from all the hustle and bustle. Spring is one of the best times of the year to visit the woods of Gwent. The woods are full of life. It's like a botanic explosion has occurred with flora and fauna of all kinds coming into life and making an appearance. Walking through the woods is a real sensory experience.

RSPB Garden Birdwatch

I've been taking part in the RSPB Garden Birdwatch this weekend.
Its been a cloudy wet day with out a break in the clouds.

My garden feeders were busiest at day break and then there has been a few bursts of visitors but not a great deal of activity.

Even though its been relatively quiet I did get graced with a variety of species ( the numbers shown are for the most number of that species seen at any one time today)-

  • Starling (10)
  • House Sparrows (7)
  • Blue Tit (3)
  • Great Tit (2)
  • Coal Tit (2)
  • Black Bird (2)
  • Wren (1)
  • Black Cap (1)
  • Magpie (1)
  • Robin (1)
No Long Tailed Tits or Goldfinches but most of my visitors were regulars.

The Wren has been making an appearance more frequently.
