20/04/2014 Marloes Clock in Pembrokeshire. I’ve had such a great week, can’t wait to come back somewhen in future!
I’m back home now and a little bit sad but have got some great memories!
19/04/2014-Had a fantastic day on Skomer Island in Pembrokeshire today! But first in the blog I have something to mention that happened before I got on the boat at Deer Park, I first saw a Buzzard, then a Kestrel came and joined it and then a Peregrine Falcon swooped in! So there were 3 lovely birds of prey all hovering at once!
Then we got onto Skomer and it was fantastic! I saw lots of Puffins, Guillemots, Kittiwakes, Fulmars and a few Gannets on the boat over. I also saw my first Chough of the year, and they are fantastic birds to see, I love their red beaks so much! It was at the Wick that I saw this Chough, and while I was there I got very very close to a few Puffins and as always that’s an amazing experience! They are one of my favourite birds the its just brilliant to be close up and see their true beauty! There was also lots of chances to capture Skomer’s amazing landscape (as pictured above) and it really is so beautiful, just like all of Pembrokeshire! I have had such a good time away in Pembrokeshire, and I am sad to be going home tomorrow.
18/04/2014 (Part 3)-Just to show you what the general Pembrokeshire area is like, here is the beautiful village of Little Haven! Its such a nice, calm, relaxed and beautiful area, and everyone is so nice! It really is a wonderful part of the country.
18/04/2014 (Part 2)-Spectacular Seabird Cruise!
Went on a boat ride around Skomer and Skokholm Islands in Pembrokeshire today! We were meant to go to Grassholm but the water was too rough. It was still brilliant though, I saw my favourite birds the Guillemot, Razorbill, Kittiwake, Fulmar, Buzzard and Puffin and Gannet (as pictured.) I also saw some more fantastic Grey Seals, Oystercatchers and as pictured a Herring Gull sat on the boat! Its such a beautiful area and it was so great to be at sea with wonderful creatures around!

18/04/2014 (Part 1)
I started my day with a walk to across Deer Park in Martin’s Haven, Pembrokeshire. I saw my first Sand Martin of the year, and saw some amazing views! Yesterday I didn’t really get a picture which I think captured the amazing Pembrokeshire landscape, but I think these 4 pictures do! Its such a stunning landscape here! I can’t think of anywhere in the world more beautiful than this area, its got the perfect combination of genuinely beautiful Welsh land and a lovely coast!

17/04/2014(Part 2)-Ramsey Island is near the beautiful Welsh City of St. David’s! So we went along after the boat trip to see wonderful St. David’s Cathedral! There is the Cathedral and the ruins of the old one!
Its a lovely city, and Pembrokeshire and Wales in general is so beautiful and lovely! I really wanna call this county home at some point in my life, and if there’s a place that can be classed as perfect for me its here! Its got beautiful views, my favourite wildlife and amazing people!
Everyone in Wales is just so friendly! Don’t get me wrong I am a proud Englishman but I wish we had what the Welsh had in terms of patriotism and kindness of people! Everywhere we have been the staff have been excellent, the reason we’re here is because its my Mum’s birthday, and today we went into a Cafe’ for tea and we mentioned this and low and behold the scone came out with candles in it! brilliant!

17/04/2014 (Part 1)-My Welsh adventure continued with a boat trip around the wonderful Ramsey Island! I saw my first Fulmar (2nd picture from top), Rock Dove, Kittiwake (3rd picture from top) and Raven of the year! Of course Kittiwakes and Fulmars are two of my favourite birds and that was great! I also saw 3 more of my favourite birds, Guillemot, Razorbill and Buzzard! When I am with these seabirds I always feel so happy! I also saw loads of Grey Seals (top picture) which was fantastic too! It was an powerful experience going on a speed boat and really thrill seeking, and the guides and staff were really great!
The other 2 pictures and Ramsay itself and a beautiful Pembrokeshire sea landscape! I’m once again seeing why I love Pembrokeshire so much, its so beautiful and tranquil and the people are great, which I will mention a bit more about in my next blog.
I began my Welsh adventure this year in its historical and beautiful capital city, Cardiff! I explored Cardiff Castle (top picture) before going on a wonderful Open Top Bus ride tour! I love doing these for cities, and Cardiff was a brilliant one!
The 2nd picture down is the City Hall clock tower, third down is Cardiff Bay, 4th down is an old Norwegian Church where Roald Dahl was christened! 5th down is Gerraint Thomas’ Gold Postbox in honour of his gold at London 2012, its the first I’ve seen in person so that was great! And bottom is the River Taff and the Millennium Stadium, this is important to me as the first game I ever watched of football on TV (Man United beating Millwall to win the 2004 FA Cup) was played in this stadium!
