I went to Lake Vyrnwy today. I tried to take pictures of some birds there from the bird hide but the day was so very dark that I really needed a tripod because of the slow shutter speeds. I didn't have one but managed to salvage one bird pic. It's a Chaffinch.
We've had lots and lots of rain here recently and I photographed the water coming from the dam (which was built in about 1880 I think). It's still raining as I type this four hours later actually and more is forecast for tonight and tomorrow. It was by general opinion a 'miserable' day with rain, wind and a chilly 5c (41f), but as I may have mentioned previously I have a bit of a soft spot for the so called 'poor' weather - although when you don't see the sun sometimes for weeks on end it can get a smidge depressing!
