Day 18 A walk and a watch

Day 18 of our 30 days wild adventure and we are all doing fine!

I took the kids up the valley to the Garn lakes nature reserve (part of Blaenavon World Heritage) for a walk, a picnic and to spot some birds.

“I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people.” ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭26:12‬ 

As we approached the lake we were greeted by some Mallards, Ozzy (7) reminded them of the no swimming rule!

We kept on walking through the park and saw black birds and wood pigeons

Sammy (3) dressed himself in his nature outfit for the trip. This consisted of what can only be described as a Denis Waterman bomber jacket (from Minder), a shirt that only a TV magician from the 1980s could get away with and a Holyrood tartan tie! But somehow it worked! The Birds were not put off.

We hit the next lake and were followed around by some Canada Geese.

We then walked back to the first lake for our picnic and a rest, enjoying the scenery. On the lake we noticed a pair of common scoters, they were absolutely stunning preening themselves on the bank (the birds, not my kids).

I love the valleys!
