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. The eyes are dazzled with an array of different colours, lots of fresh greens, the whole spectrum of coloured flowers, Yellow celandine, the white of the Anemones, Pinks of the Red Campions, and more yellows from Wild D

Spreading the love of Goldcliff Lagoons

I was honoured to be invited by Gwent Ornithological Society to be a guest talker at their meeting last night.

It's the first time I have actually delivered a presentation about birds and something that I am very passionate about that is not work-related. What a novel and good experience it was to be had.

I hope my passion for Goldcliff Lagoons and its wildlife came across and hopefully spread my love of the reserve to the audience.

On that note, I was made up by the turnout and it was great to see many of my good birding and photography friends attend to support me.

A big thanks to Gwent Ornithological Society for being great hosts and thanks to everyone who attended. 

My friend and fellow blogger Neville Davies took the pictures. A nice thought and thanks for sharing.

I look forward to seeing many of you again of course at Goldcliff Lagoons.
