The Celtic Rain Forest RSPB Gwenffrwd-Dinas

Common Redstart (Male) One of the most unique and incredible places to birdwatch in Wales has to be RSPB Gwenffrwd-Dinas (Dinas) The reserve is situated around a hill named "Dinas" in mid-wales a few miles outside the town of Llandovery. The hill ( I can't help but call it a mountain) which is 331 meters high has steep slopes that are covered in predominantly Atlantic Oak and Alder Trees and other areas covered in scrubland. I did some research about Atlantic Rainforests and according to the Woodland Trust , this type of habitat is found in places that have high rainfall but with low variation in temperature throughout the year. I have been visiting Dinas with my three amigo friends for the last couple of years and I must admit it is one of the only places that I have been to that has thousands of Oak trees densely packed around a mountain like this. When I walk into the woodland I imagine I am in something out of J R Tolkiens Lord of The Rings. It really is magical. Din

My Competition Entry to Wildlife Blogger of the Year 18

This year I have been humbled at times when people have commented on the fact that they like my blog and have enjoyed reading it.

 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.

You can access my entry by clicking the this LINK. You will be asked to register your email address and name. Remember to enter my number 72.

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.
