4th August 2020 – Clywedog Reservoir

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The weather was not so kind to us today. We drove north from our base near Aberaeron in search of adventure, but for most of the day there was drizzle or low cloud.  Our fill of nature was the landscapes which we saw. Bear in mind I only took photos when it was dry enough to venture out!

We stopped at RSPB Ynis Hir but we hadn’t done our homework and the reserve was closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

We  had a sneak view of the Dyfi Estuary where all we could see was a small flock of Canada Geese.

We then made our way via Machynlleth, the ancient capital of Wales in the heart of the UNESCO Dyfi biosphere, to the Clywedog  Reservoir  – lovely views but not many birds, certainly not ospreys which we had seen reported here – mainly house martins, sand Martins and pied wagtails.

We returned home via Devil’s Bridge but not stopping as again it was very busy with tourists.
