A very cold late winter morning at Gilfach.
All natural sounds this morning; no cars, no planes (I think). First, the Marteg river as it rushes to join the nearby Wye. One day I hope to see the salmon make their run up this river; I was unlucky this past year. Then the icy cold wind appears on occasion. And of course, the birds.
Lots of pheasants this morning; but many more birds as well. I wish I could identify them all.
Gilfach is an extraordinarily beautiful place and sits in a lovely valley. It’s just 5 minutes outside Rhayader on the road to Aberystwyth, yet always feels quite remote.
