Had a beautiful ride this morning, sun was up and blazing with hardly a cloud to be seen, but there was also a cooling breeze, well between 06.30 and 09.30., after that it got decidedly muggy and close. What do they say about that early bird? Rheola pond looked so beautiful, I had to take a few shots.
Then along by the canal at Abergarwed, you can see what pride the canal neighbours take in their gardens that back right onto the canal.
Not only was the sun shining but I saw two lesser spotted woodpeckers at Resolven, one flew across the road and settled on a telephone pole, and was soon joined by another, of course by the time I’d stopped, got off the Subway 1, and got my camera out, they were high in a tree and out of sight. But it’s the first time I’ve ever seen one let alone two, and it’s up there with the thrill of seeing the otter and her cubs last year.
