Birds and Butterflies…

A few shots of some of the wildlife seen on my river walk.

There are a lot of Bullfinches around at the moment and this one was seen feeding on seed heads at the entrance to the Mochdre Brook.

There was a also a lot of Nuthatch activity high in the trees opposite the entrance to the Mochdre Brook and I managed to capture this shot of one of them. There appeared to be 3 juveniles chasing each other around.

This Gatekeeper butterfly is amazingly ‘perched’ on a spider’s web.

Not seen many Peacock’s this year, but this one was caught taking in some warmth from the morning sunshine at Vaynor.

The Kingfisher has been very active around the Mochdre Brook area, but unfortunately has not presented an opportunity of a decent photograph.
