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.

The Goldcliff Lagoons Guide and Map


I have been working on an additional page to my blog that is named the Goldcliff Lagoons Guide. The page includes a basic map of the reserve in a diagram format to make it easy for visitors to find their way around to the hides and platforms.

To compliment the map I have also written a brief overview of the hides and platforms describing what can be seen from them including handy tips, key species, and rarities observed.

This is my first stab at this so to speak and I hope people find it useful as I am often asked is their a map and where are the best places to watch the birds from.

I am planning to update the page with more useful details and photographs.

Please take a look at and spread the word to anyone who is planning to visit the reserve.
