Full of birds!

Ken does a round-up of Naturebites’ short-walks in January… a fantastic reminder (to me) of what we are able to show off in such a small space of time!   “Parking on the roadside opposite The Oystercatcher resturant in the outskirts of Rhosneigr we were greeted by the sight of a majestic Peregrine patrolling over the […]

A Focus on Nature.

There is really only one thing that I need to go outdoors and observe wildlife to the extent that I do; binoculars. At different points through the year I might be clad in shorts and flip-flops or layer upon layer to fight off those impressive Anglesey winds, but to really see the magic of a […]

Albatross

Albatross is a mighty fine tune by one of my all time favourite bands ‘Fleetwood Mac’. In fact, how about setting the scene by opening up a new a tab and playing it as you read?! Just click here. The reason I have chosen to call this post ‘Albatross’ has nothing to do with the […]
