6th July 2019 – Pembrokeshire, Wales

We were going to Pembrokeshire in Wales for a party to celebrate the wedding of some friends and made a short break of it. It wasn’t really an opportunity for nature photos but as I had a camera with me I wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to take a few photos when we were out and about.

There was only one bird of note and that was a northern gannet which flew across the harbour at Tenby.

However butterflies have reappeared (they seem to go quiet in June) and I managed photos of four different species in a field at the Bed & Breakfast where we were staying.

Just think there are all those wonderful sea birds such as puffins, guillemots and razorbills on the island of Skomer, which is very near to here. We have visited Skomer before (see my blog page about Skomer) and I am sure new opportunities will present themselves in the future.
