Haven’t blogged here for a while – mainly due to my having spent some time in West Wales. Walked several sections of both the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion Coast Paths and also explored the Preseli Hills, where the sheep in the above photo obligingly posed for me near the rocky outcrop of Carn Menyn, believed to be the source of some of the bluestones at Stonehenge.

The wildlife highlight of the week came on a boat trip to Ramsey Island – saw lots of Atlantic Grey seal pups on the stony beaches and five choughs putting on a spectacular diving and swooping display high above the cliffs. Hopefully, in time, this’ll inspire another island poem for the sequence I’ve been intermittently working on over the past year…
