Over the Easter weekend I was lucky enough to visit Lake Vyrnwy in central Wales. The Lake is surrounded by 24,000 acres of RSPB owned and managed land, meaning there are a multitude of different trails and hides to explore. By sitting in the Coed y Capel bird hide it’s easy to forget about the breath-taking scenery around you as there is never a dull moment from the hide itself. It would be easy to sit in the hide for hours on end without ever becoming bored as there is a constant flitter of dozens of woodland birds, mostly tagged by the RSPB. The photos I have published on this blog (that are labelled as being from the Coed y Capel bird hide) were all taken within just one hour, I cut the number of photos down from well over 400 to just 16 with photos remaining of Greater Spotted Woodpeckers, Coal Tits, Chaffinches, Siskins, Great Tits, Grey Squirrels and Bramblings. Various other photos were taken in the area surrounding the lake, spotting species such as the tiny Goldcrest and Treecreeper.
