Lake Vyrnwy

Lake Vyrnwy is a reservoir in Powys, Wales, built in the 1880s to supply Liverpool with fresh water. It flooded the head of the Vyrnwy valley and submerged the small village of Llanwddyn.  There was a lot to explore and we ran out of time and did not have chance to get to the waterfall.  Despite the showers we found plenty of small birds to photograph.

Scenes of Ludlow, Lyth Hill and Aquamere Reserve

It was market day in Ludlow and we discovered a gallery showing Martin Parr's work that had been exhibited at Somerset  house.  

The Aquamere reserve  was very quiet although a Kingfisher flashed by landed for a short time and was gone before we had time to photograph it.  It was windy and there were dark clouds that eventually brought rain.  Ducks, Moorhens, Coots, Swans and Blue Tits were observed and of course the Kingfisher.
