The Gower
A short family holiday on 'The Gower' South Wales produced some interesting species. On the birding front 3 chough and a goshawk were nice birds and 3 red kites were seen from the car on the way home.

A 3ft long grass snake was a nice suprise. My wife screaming SNAKE alerted me to its presence.
