Sampling in the Conwy Valley.

After another cold start it was a beautiful day in the Conwy Valley, though the stronger breeze made it feel a good deal chillier than previous days. We spent the day sampling on the River Conwy. Following yesterdays mammoth 15 hour session, we decided to take it easy today and cut the day short after 12 hours!

Two of the sampling stations in the Conwy Valley.

At Tal-y-cafn I saw a Red Kite, my first in North Wales. The dragonfly nymph is Four-spot Chaser.

Near one of the sampling stations I came across this large Willow Bracket Phellinus igniarius. The moth is Pale Brindled Beauty.
