Bird Rock (Craig Y Deryn) Our Sunday walk was to the foot of Bird Rock, which stands 760ft overlooking the Dysynni Valley and is home to the many Cormorants that nest there. This craggy rock is said to be the only inland nesting place for the Cormorant in the British Isles. Hundreds of years ago, the sea-water of Cardigan Bay stretched inland covering the valley floor and from those ancient times and generations on, these birds haven never forsaken their rock, hence its name. When they have young, its fascinating to watch their flight out to sea, returning with fish to feed their babies.
Reflection Through The Seasons
I live in a small Welsh village which is situated in the southern tip of the Snowdonia National Park. Its an area of true outstanding natural beauty. We have the Cambrian mountains to the east of us and the coast of Cardigan Bay out to the west. My husband and I moved to Wales from The Cotswolds in England 19 years ago. We bought the old village Police Station, which we have worked tirelessly renovating ever since. You could say its a real labour of love. I have retired after working many years in the travel business, this now leaves me free to pursue the many things in life that I enjoy.
