The wife took me to the Welsh Wildlife Centre in Cilgerran in West Wales for my 50th birthday. We were booked on a ferry to go to Skomer Island to watch the sea birds and a bit of vis-mig (visual migration) but the weather was against us and so the ferry was cancelled due to rough seas "ah well".
We enjoyed the wildlife centre though it was only £3 to park your car and the rest was free there was also a lovely visitors centre with feeders so you could watch the birds in the dry and a nice little restaurant where we had our lunch after running from hide to hide dodging the rain showers.

who's this 50 year old twitcher! ?
There wasn't a massive amount of birds seen but the weather was atrocious, we managed a few photo's but didn't get the kingfisher it kept flying passed the hide but never settled for us to grab a picture.

where's that kingfisher?

These last two images was taken by Tina, think they're the best of the lot but don't tell her that, I'll never live it down!

 Big thanks to the wife for a cracking weekend, also to my sister Pat and brother-in-law John for giving us the guided tour of Cardigan and a good night out. Cheers.
