L’dod Lake & Cefnllys

The lake was frozen over , so no Goosanders, but a hilarious sight-no camera of course- as the Water Rail decided to walk from the lagoon reeds across to the island! Slippin’ and slidin’ all over the place!  Too much energy to fly I guess. Wot fun! Back up Cefnllys and oddly Brenda’s pool not frozen (stream runs through). Yesterday , the scene of a fem. Kingfisher nailing  dragonfly nymphs , which I was lucky to catch._DSC7878_filtered
