Royal weddings and family commitments notwithstanding, I still managed to fit in two visits to Llyndy Isaf on the weekend.
I met the well-known landscape photographer, Joe Cornish on Saturday. He was on his way from a photo shoot at the Trust’s Dolmelynllyn estate and we’d asked him to get some more photos of Llyndy Isaf. We had a short walk and met owner Ken Owen for a chat. Joe was going to get some shots of the sun setting over the farm – I can’t wait to see the photos!
On Sunday, I ‘beat the bounds’ of the farm and the photos above are the result. It was an amazingly sunny day and the woods were alive with bird and insect life. I noticed that most of the heather on the mountain has died back over the winter. I must ask Sabine, our wildlife officer if she knows what’s caused this.
We are currently collating the figures for donations that have been received so far and I hope to update you soon on where we’ve got to!
