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.

 I was recently encouraged by a good friend to enter a blogging competition. Whilst I am up against some excellent competition I would be so grateful if my readers, subscribers, followers, friends and family could lend me their support.

The competition is hosted by Terra Incognita and is  named  the Wildlife Blogger of the Year 2018! (#wildlifeblogger18

I would be very grateful if you read my piece of writing I have entered  - and support me by voting for it if you wish.

I have based my submission on the blog post Helios and Selene Delight that I wrote and published on this blog earlier in the year.

It describes an evening I spent at Goldcliff Lagoons watching a glorious sunset and moon rise.

The post I hope shows off my passion for the reserve and my wish for it to be preserved for future generations to enjoy.

I would really appreciate you taking the time to vote for me. Your support would mean a great deal to me.
